As I showed a picture of the proof copies of the books to my illustrator, Cami, her response was great: “This just became real somehow.” I felt the same way yesterday when I finally had a printed copy of the book in my hands. Lightning Source did a wonderful job on the printing and the pairing of two of the best women I know (Cami Woodruff-art/design, Jen Bruck-fonts/lettering) produced an awesome cover.
The proofs have been approved and now it is just a waiting game for when the distributors (Amazon, Barnes & Noble) have the information updated on their websites. Depending upon how quickly they get the information, preording may be available. I will definitely keep people posted (most likely through the Toonopolis Files Facebook Page). Here are a few pictures of both the paperback and hardcover copies of the book:
As always, any comments either here or on the Facebook page are much appreciated. Thanks.
