They're Here!

The proof copies for Dragonfriend just arrived and I have to say they look pretty darned cool! There are already a few things I'll probably adjust  -- trim size, paper color and such. The font might be a bit small, by about a point, too. This is the kind of stuff that you need actual proof copies for -- to see what the book will physically look like so you can fix potential problem areas. Copies now go out to my proofers (real word?) who will act as my final line of defense against grammatical errors, typos, and idiotic plot blunders.

This day has been a long time coming so please allow me to geek out on myself for a brief moment (deep breath)...THIS IS SO AWESOME!

Totally awesome! Cheers to you!

Thanks Bonnie Rae! I'll drop you a line when everything's set.

Thanks, Brianna!

Beautiful looking cover! Looking forward to the final book.

Saw where you write for Scooby. My kids love the new series and I love that Dan Krall's style really comes through in the animation and coloring.

Roger Eschbacher said...

Thank you, Brian. I'm very pleased with how the book is coming together and I think the cover is one of my favorite parts of the whole project.

I love writing these Scooby Doo episodes -- so much thought went into the series-wide arc. I hope they're (we're) allowed to play everything out as I think the viewers are going to have their minds blown by what's in the works.

I'm a big fan of Dan Krall, too. Always such originality in his work. The guy's an artistic genius and, as a bonus, a nice guy, too.

Oh, the look and feel of a new book! They look great and I'm looking forward to my copy!

We're right on track with each other, too. I pushed the "publish" button the other day for my fourth Fog book, and today I ordered a small batch. So I'll be all ga-ga when they arrive. :-)

Congrats again!

Thanks, Keith! I'm about a third of the way through "Mountain" and enjoying it quite a bit!

Brooke Rousseau said...

Awesome. Totally geek out - why not? Congrats and good luck!

As a soldier in the writer campaign, I salute you.

Quite exciting to be putting your book together. I too am at this stage. May all your typos be caught.

Best wishes on your writing.

Roger Eschbacher said...

Thanks, AE. I have to say that even though it's a lot of work, I'm thoroughly enjoying the process. Good luck to you on your book, too!

Rachel Morgan said...

I grant you total freedom to geek out! I absolutely would too!

Roger Eschbacher said...

Thanks, Rachel!

When the pen and the spirit together attend, then God say "Amen!"
Are your friends and family your last line of defense?

Roger Eschbacher said...

@ MyTricksterGod, Aye, tis often the case.
