I know my book exists in the real world, because my advanced copies arrived earlier this week. I like to think that I have been pretty even-keeled through this whole process, but man, having these things in my hands prompted such a rush of emotions. Even now, a couple days later, every time I see them sitting on the chair in the corner of my office, its just about all I can do to keep from falling over.
HOLY CRAP THE BOOK IS REAL! Legit: it is entirely different to hold it in your hands. The digital files don’t do it justice, the photos either. I can not wait for y’all to see this thing and crack it open.
Go on, go pre-order this thing to make sure you get a copy on October 10, especially if you want that deluxe edition, because that was printed in limited quantities. Oh man, the custom end papers in that look so goooooooooood.
I highly recommend pre-ordering through Bookshop.org (regular, but especially the deluxe). They know how to properly pack and ship books (which is definitely not the case for Amazon) and you can select a local bookseller to receive a portion of the price as part of Bookshop’s profit-sharing. I really like that.
Oh, what, you want more pictures? (click to embiggen in a new tab)
