I'm immersed in my book's pre-production particulars -- picture me floating on my back, contemplating cloud shapes while book-design tidbits float by. I reach out, tentatively at first, and take a tiny taste. Oh yum! Why am I surprised that the Princess of Process would savor every byte? It's true: I smack my lips over fonts, drool around page headers, lick the adverbs out of back-cover text. I am the Duchess of Detail and I am frolicking in my natural habitat. You who know me well are nodding now. Yes, she who alphabetizes her spice rack and reads the small print on cereal boxes would surely relish all tasks that call for fine-toothed comb and magnifying glass.
If and when I'm able to recognize that all is complete, Voluntary Nomads will move from pre-production into production. Then I'll be able to predict a publication date. I will keep you posted, so to speak.
