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!
