Chapter One is really actually finished, and I’ve just sent it off to a printer who assures me she can have the various component parts (pages, maps, stickers, prints, bookmarks) of the first 25 copies waiting for me in Boston when I get there on Friday. I’ll be up with Neil at Cara‘s place collating and assembling into the wee hours so I can debut the book the next day at MICE, where, if all goes according to plan, I will sell them at a rather substantial loss, because yeesh you guys, printing is expensive. After this initial test run I am going to have to figure out a better way to make these things.

Tomorrow I will call my print designer friends and start doing the offset math. I will scramble to catch up on all the web work I owe clients. I’ll buy bus tickets to Boston and back and wish I’d done it weeks ago. Hopefully, I will even scratch out some sketches for Chapter Two. But just now, everyone in this house needs a nap.
