I spent a good chunk of the afternoon sleeping. That’s because last night I made the mistake of going to bed at 9:00 PM and trying to convince my brain it was actually 10:00 PM because some idiots in government say so. Just what a natural night-owl’s brain with insomniac tendencies needs: a reason to lie in bed awake. So, as seems to happen every year when @#$%ing Daylight Saving Time kicks in, I couldn’t sleep and gave up. I finally managed to get in a few hours this afternoon.
The good news is that when I woke up, Chareva told me some interesting reading material had arrived.
Yup, that’s our preview copy of the book. Actually, it’s the second preview copy. In the first copy, the left and right pages were swapped. That might not sound like a big deal, but Chareva spent an extraordinary amount of time designing two-page spreads that cover a concept. Often a cartoon on the left continues onto the right-side page.
So we now have exactly one copy with the left/right mixup. Maybe it will be like one of those mis-stamped coins and become worth an extra buck or two because it’s rare.
Anyway, we have to give the copy that arrived today one more careful look before calling it final. I expect to be able to announce the release date very, very soon.
In the meantime, I’ve got a @#$%load of work to do on the film, and not many weeks left to do it.
