I know you are all anxiously awaiting the book's release, so let me pass along everything that I've been told:
First I have to get all of the illustrations (which are FABULOUS btw) scanned and mailed off with the book itself and a few other little documents (thank-you lists and blurbs) to the publisher. After a few days I'll get a call from their design team to discuss font size, format, layout, etc. About two weeks after that I'll get a sample and from there I have no idea where this is going to go.
I'm excited beyond all measure but we must all be patient. I'll pass along updates as soon as I get word on something. Until then keep your fingers crossed!
