I got the print proof of One Big Beautiful Thing today and it looks fantastic. Kristin’s cover looks amazing. The picture of me on the back looks just like me, but what can you do? Kristin is a gifted artist, but she can only do so much.
As for seeing it in print, I read almost exclusively ebooks now. I love the portability and the instant downloads and how my Kindle is lighter than the average hardcover book and many paperbacks, so I’m in no way anti-ebook. I’m very pro ebook, but I would be lying to say it wasn’t exciting to see it in print. It was very exciting.
I also got a review on the British blog, Lost to Books. Warning: Spoilers.
It’s not the best review I’ve gotten, but it’s not bad. I appreciate her opinion and how much there was of it. Man, that’s a long review. So onward and upward. Here’s hoping Lost to Books has a billion readers and they all buy any book that gets three or more stars. 🙂
