I went away for about ten days in mid-October. Before I left, I finished the last spread of the book (above). When I came back, I finished the title page (below). Barring unforeseen circumstances, this seems to mean that the interior of the book is finished. I can't quite grasp that concept, yet. And I still have to paint the front and back jackets. I don't want to tempt fate by shouting from the rooftops. But I am allowing myself to cheer, in a teeny-tiny voice: yahooo!
