I spent the weekend hunched over my laptop, putting the wraps on the layout and such for GameSpite Quarterly 2. My eyes are swimmy and my back hurts, but by gosh the book has been uploaded and proofs have been ordered (one for me, one for the copy editor). Assuming everything goes well, I expect the final result to be available August 20. (I know, that’s nearly a month from now, but it takes a couple of weeks for Blurb to print and ship the press copies.) As a special extra to make me feel doubly accomplished, I also uploaded the subscriber bonus book and ordered a proof of that.
Is it rad? YES. It is rad.
Unfortunately, since I didn’t wrap all this up until after midnight last night, I wasn’t able to put together this week’s GameSpite online update. I hope you can forgive me.
Incidentally, about two dozen people have thrown their hats in the ring as potential authors. It’s great that so many people are interested! But since I’m only looking to add a couple of contributors to the mix, now I am dreading the inevitable 20 rejection letters I will have to mail out. Something to keep me feeling nauseous while I’m on vacation, I guess. It probably wouldn’t be smart for me to relax too much, anyway; I get paranoid when things seem to be going too well.
