The Book Has Left the Building

"So, uh, now what?"

Yes, that day that you all thought would never come (and let’s face it, even we were beginning to have our doubts) has come: At 5 PM ET we pushed the button on our 480-page bundle of joy: The Gilmore Girls Companion. It is now in the able hands of the publisher, BearManor Media.

Reliable sources have informed us that there was a weekend at some point, but this weekend found us going through that beast known as the index, as well as some final tweaks. (Truth be told, reliable sources have been telling us that many, many weekends have been and gone, but these remain unsubstantiated rumors at this point. We’ll let you know if we emerge from our computers long enough to glimpse one.)

And on the subject of that index, let me just say for the record if I never have to alphabetize a book’s subjects again, I will be a happy, happy man indeed. Next time, I’ll read the @!!#! InDesign manual. (Sorry, needed to do that.)

So enough of my grousing, what doe this mean for you, the Gilmore fan who has hung on for who knows how long? A good question, but one for another time, I’m afraid. For now, Pamela and I must stumble forth blindly from our little office at the top of the stairs, blink into the setting sun, and then glance at each other hoping the other will utter those two words that Amy always intended to use to close out the series: “I’ll cook.”*

*No, no, those aren’t THE words; only Amy knows those. That was yours truly’s attempt at humor. Don’t worry, shan’t happen again.

      I’m told that copies will be printed in Europe and available through Amazon there; we’ll let everybody know when that happens and which sites have them.

    OMG, it’s finally done!!! I’m so excited! 480 pages?! That’s heaven! Do you know if it will be available on Amazon by Christmas?

      The finished book should be ready in 2-3 weeks, depending on how many books are scheduled for press ahead of this one.

      For those who want to give the book to somebody for the holidays, first off, thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, watch the blog/Facebook pages as we’re going to come up with something to send out as a gift announcement that you can slip into a stocking or card, just in case copies don’t arrive in time.

    ahhhh! ๐Ÿ˜€ so excited!
    Do you think we’ll ever know the final words
    that Amy meant to end the series with?
    Does she keep them closely guarded?

      I can’t imagine she’s kept those words from her inner circle on Gilmore, but I’ve yet to hear from anybody who knows what they are. My favorite suggestion came from Amy herself during an interview when she said the words were “You’re adopted,” but Dan quickly jumped in to say that she was kidding.

        That would’ve been hilarious (:
        I have a love hate relationship with cliff hangers…
        Also, thank you so much for all the hard work you’ve put into this, all of us Gilmore fans really appreciate it.

        Thank YOU for hanging in there during this long process.

    Even if they arer not printed in Europe I will buy them on the internet and let them be shipped to Germany…I want this book soo badly! ๐Ÿ˜€

      Well we really appreciate that. Just let us get “the lay of the land” the first week the book is out to make sure we find the best way for you to get it without having to pay too much beyond the cover price. We’re supposed to have some copies printed closer to where you are. We’ll keep the blog updated with order info as we learn what’s going on. Thanks again for your interest!
