A courier just brought me a pre-printing copy of the forthcoming book. A few final changes are possible but this is pretty much it.
I fought to get the cheesy scissors motif removed but apparently my diva like hissy fit didnt carry any weight..."But I am the author I tell you...the author! Does that mean nothing?"
There is still some Americanising to be done, which means messing up the spelling...seriously, you need more vowels and obscure spelling people. I asked if the American version will also have laminated, cheeseburger proof pages but the budget wouldn't stretch that far.*
I will be reading it on the Eurostar over to Paris this afternoon. Hope there aren't too many hideous errors.
* My American friends and readers should realise that this is probably a joke **
There are some good trees in there. None of them mine obviously. Many thanks to the Mirai master.
Onwards and upwards people....
** Seriously, if there is any confusion or misunderstanding of irony/my sense of humour/humor. It was a joke. I did not ask for cheeseburger proof pages...if anything, they would need to withstand a Philly Cheese Steak sandwich wit extra cheese from Tony Lukes at 39 Oregon St. Philadelphia. Those were the days...
