I’m genuinely a little nervous what y’all are going to do to Lanyon after this page, hahah. Maybe in this version, Lanyon doesn’t die of shock from learning Jekyll’s secret because the readers already killed him.
Well, it’s been another hectic week of prepping Book 1 for print! I’m a little ashamed of myself; I’m usually the person who blocks in ample buffer time to account for the unexpected fires that inevitably pop up near the deadline, but this time around I’ve blown right past all of them. (The latest one: After fully converting all my files to CMYK, I discovered that the CMYK black is subtly different from RGB black, so now I need to change the text color on 212 pages.) This past weekend some rather troubling health concerns (most likely stress-related) have turned up, but I’m in full “I’ll just put this over here with the rest of the fire” mode. Knock on wood, at least one or the two nasty symptoms has gone away, but if anyone knows any good remedies for UPPER back pain, do let me know.
