I have a draft print-out of the book from my wonderful designer/printer Joseph Carlough. Tomorrow morning, with fresh eyes, I’ll do the final proofing of the content.
Joe is still working out some issues with the cover – the first stock was too heavy and cracked along the fold. He’s trying 10 and 20 pounds lighter paper, and maybe ditching the glossy paper. I’ll see more samples soon.
All the pre-sold copies will be mailed out in early February. Each one will have a postcard – if you love the book, post a card to a friend and tell them about the book. The cards are stunning, and this poet will deeply appreciate your help with marketing.
