A couple of quick updates about the book! I’ve been intensively pushing through the final work on the book – editing, reviewing artwork, cover design, proofing, indexing, and all of that fun stuff. This week, we received the first proof copies of the book – for the first time, I held the book in my hands! We’re finishing proofing and all the other final details over the next few weeks. And assuming all continues to go well, we expect to have print books some time in May – first for my campaign backers, and then shortly afterward, shipping to the public.
Cover Art & Illustrations!
Our amazing artist Valerie Herron has completed the exquisite artwork for the book. Cover design has just been completed and is shown here. We won’t be releasing the rest of the images until after publication, but here are a few glimpses Valerie has shared on social media. I couldn’t be more thrilled with the work she has produced.
