At the risk of sounding even more pretentious than normal, it's a bit of a religious experience holding this thing in my hand in actual book form.
The cover is very eye-catching in person, and the spine is a nice bright cobalt blue, which I think will stand out nicely on a shelf. And Bantam sprang for embossing; I feel special. *g*
Other than that, I don't have much to say for myself. It continues to be a lazy week of hanging around with friends, eating very good food (as cooked by arcaedia last night), and generally decompressing. I wrote maybe a page of W&W Monday, and I have a bunch of notebooky stuff that's go to be incorporated into B&I because I did some location scouting while we were in NYC on Saturday, refreshing my sensory memory of the city (I hadn't been there since the late '90's, so it was time for a return visit.)
Vivid sensory memories are a powerful writerly tool. It helps to pick telling details if you have a lot of details available to choose from.
