Just arrived home from the publisher.
The above picture is my face after handing over all the Book of Man materials to total strangers.
Needless to say, it went very well. We went over the layouts, internal and external.
The best news was I will have print ready proofs by the end of this week. We could be looking at first print the following Monday-ish.
The cover will be da bomb. Period.
There may be some final page layout nudging involved, but I am confident this will hit the universe in the way it was originally intended.
When I spoke to Lloyd Pye before his passing, he said this will go one of two ways.
The book will either:
(a) disappear into the miserable dark abyss of such creations, or:
(b) blow right through the roof.
I guess as far as this project goes, I have always been a “B” man. 🙂
I will of course provide an update to this as soon as I hear and see anything.
After all, since this has been in existence for a solid 10 years, I suppose a few more days ain’t ‘gonna kill me (much).
Cheers my friends – here we go.
