First pass proof!

This fat stack of paper arrived from the folks at Flatiron Books today. Now’s when we go through the whole MS with a fine-tooth comb, looking for every last little fix and adjusting the formatting where needed. But this is pretty much what the inside of the hardcover will look like, and that’s exciting.


I’ll be hard at work on this for the next week or so. I’ve gone through Act I already this morning and it’s a bit like an out-of-body experience, because it’s been a while since I read through the whole text–long enough that I can almost pretend I didn’t write it, and read it as a reader.

Getting closer all the time.
