Nazca Plains have done an amazingly quick job in returning the initial proofs for "Assimilation", so I'm busy editing out the odd typo and random hyphenations at the moment. I would be ashamed at how many I let through on the 1st proof, but they say that it is normal to spot more with the change in format.
I am really happy with how the illustrations came out. We ended up going for the 'charcoal' effect photos - with a different one for each of the 20 stories within the collection. Full page, they look amazing (even if i do say so myself!).
“...he moves and thinks so much like a real dog, tail wagging in pleasure...”
It's probably really sad, but i must admit to be incredibly excited about how good it all looks! :)))
I hope to have the draft cover shortly, together with the details on how to go about getting yourself a copy - so watch this space...
