The first print proofs for The Olive Grove and An Endless Hunger arrived yesterday! While I love new technology and ebooks I do have a very visceral attachment to print. I worked in specialty printing and publication design for many years. It was an exciting moment to see the six paperbacks stacked on my kitchen table begging to be flipped through. I got butterflies in my stomach for all of a split second, shrieked with joy and proceeded to whip out the red pen. Marzio Ombra and I were up till midnight reading stories that we’ve read a million times. He jokes that The Olive Grove has surpassed The Hobbit in the number of times he’s read it.
