You may have noticed that I have some new digs. The lovely Hafsah of Icey Designs redid my website for me, and I’m so, so happy with the way it turned out! Hafsah is kind of a genius, you guys. I threw out one suggestion in passing (peacock feathers), and she took it and ran with it and turned it into exactly the kind of site I would have designed for myself if I had any sort of technological skills at all. LOVE.
In other news, I’m working my way through first pass pages for THE EIGHTH GUARDIAN now. That’s where I get a PDF of what the interior layout will look like, and I have to (get to?) go through the book yet again to make sure everything is as it should be. On the one hand, it’s my last chance to make any final changes, so I need to be paying close attention, but on the other hand, I’ve read THE EIGHTH GUARDIAN cover to cover at least 30 times now, so my eyes tend to glaze over whenever I even talk about the book these days. Oh well. There are worse problems to have, right?
I’ve also seen a draft of the cover for THE EIGHTH GUARDIAN, and it is so flipping cool. Not at all what I was initially expecting but a really unique concept. I seriously can’t wait until I get to share it with the world!
