I think I’m becoming a little soft in my old age.
Three of the collections that I have uploaded to be book-ified have come back to me for electronic proofing.
I’ve just done the first one – The Cielonaut – and uploaded the corrected proof, which is lovely. I was taken a little by surprise that close reading of the collection, complete with its NASA pics in glorious grayscale, left me feeling a emotionally moved. It’s a weird feeling to be affected in this way (in my opinion, at least). I hope it augers well for the way that readers might respond, as well.
Strange business, but great proress. There’s a chance, I suppose that I might even be able to get a paper copy of each of these 3 by Christmas if I give it a nudge.
