Friday Night Dinner 15: A Bit of News

The 15th in a weekly look at the progress of The Gilmore Girls Companion as we round the bend on this 2+ year adventure.

Before getting into the nitty gritty of where we’re at with the book, we’re very proud to announce that Edward Herrmann has graciously written the foreword to The Gilmore Girls Companion. For that, and for sharing his observations about the show throughout the book, we are extremely grateful.

And where exactly are we with the book, you might ask. (If you don’t, the rest of this post is going to appear a bit silly, so do please ask.)

Pamela has just about completed the layout of the book; I believe she only has the final chapter and the index to go. Meanwhile, all but three chapters have received their first edit, with the rest probably being edited by Sunday night. After that, it will all get a second read, and finally the index will have to be written up (a bear of a job, but what’s a book without an index?). After that, it’s off to the printer! Really.

Good heavens, I’m suddenly wondering what it will be like to NOT write about Gilmore Girls on a daily basis after nearly three years. Severe withdrawal symptoms ahead, I fear.

Guess I’d best be getting back to it. Thanks for indulging me πŸ™‚

    Wonderful news! He seems like such a kind, charming gentleman, not just on GG but other shows and interviews etc. Kudos! And thanks for keeping us updated.

    Thanks, Kevin. He’s extremely charming, and his written correspondence sort of nudges you to improve your own email writing, just to keep up πŸ˜‰

    Wow! That’s AMAZING! I am so excited to get this book. I can’t even imagine all the hard work you put into it, but it will be extremely appreciated.:D

      Thank you for the kind words, Chelsea. After all this time, I must admit I’m a wee bit nervous about finally putting it out there in the Gilmore fan world…

    Once you’ve finished writing about Gilmore Girls you can then move on to reading about Gilmore Girls! πŸ˜›

    It’s sooo close, I don’t think I can wait any longer!

      Ha! I’ve spent the last week reading about Gilmore Girls (albeit they’re the words I wrote, but still — man can I blather on! Thank heavens you all are going to get the edited version.) Won’t be long now πŸ™‚

    Hello, again! Sorry to be a bother, but have things gone as planned? will the book be headed to the publisher tomorrow? πŸ˜€

    You’re no bother; I appreciate the interest. We’re definitely going to press in the next few days; just completed the second readthrough last night, so we have to make all the corrections to the computer files today. Also waiting to hear back from some people who need to confirm some basic facts. But we’re ALMOST there πŸ™‚
