Friday Night Dinner 16: The Final Friday?
The 16th in a weekly look at the progress of The Gilmore Girls Companion as we round the bend on this 2+ year adventure.
Could it be? Could it be that we’re actually nearing the end of this long adventure in exploring the Good Ship Gilmore? Gang, I think we’re just about there!
This last week has been the “hell week” for me and Pamela as we’ve worked every waking hour finalizing The Gilmore Girls Companion. I just finished the final readthrough last night, as Pamela cleaned up the last bits of the design.
Today, all that remains is transferring the corrections from the paper proofs (two giant binders worth, and nearly 500 pages!) to the computer files, compiling the index and incorporating some last-minute changes from people I’ve contacted for fact-checking, and I daresay we’ll have this book to press by Monday.
For those outside the US
Had some good news from the publisher this week. It turns out that they will also print some copies in Europe and have them available via Amazon there, at least through Amazon.co.uk. (I’m not entirely clear on whether it will go through Amazon.de, etc.). We’ll keep you posted. And please, if you have any trouble finding it there once the book is published, drop me a line at asberman813 (at) gmail.com.
As for those who are not in Europe, drop me a line at the above email address and we’ll sort something out individually. No point spending nearly three years writing a book if the people who want to read it can’t get it 🙂
