I spent nearly twenty hours straight yesterday – with only a few short breaks – doing all of the final production on the Femme Noir Volume One: The Dark City Diaries trade paperback collection and uploading the print files to the Ape Entertainment server. From roughly 6 AM Tuesday to 2 AM Wednesday, I sat in front of this computer, going over each page one last time, re-naming and re-numbering the files, and uploading them to the publisher.
My back is still killing me.
All four issues. All eight original covers. Two bonus stories. A foreword. An afterword. A sketch book. Biographies of me and Joe. 148 pages + covers... and I seriously underestimated how long it would take.
And somewhere in there, I recorded a podcast interview for the Ape guys about the book. I'm not certain that I was very coherent. I'll let you know when and where it appears so we can all have a good laugh.
Now I have to get back to writing. I have a script and a short story I'm determined to finish by the end of the month. And then, a couple of big design jobs. And then?
Probably a nervous breakdown. :)
