Proof

For indexing purposes, my editor emailed me the proofs of my book today (the hard copy is on its way).

While I know that indexing will be not tons of fun, I'm glowing. I mean. Wow. It. The book. It has beautiful fonts and big fancy initial letters and and....

It's just so pretty.

I want to kiss it.

You're allowed to kiss it. I'm sure The Minister would understand.

I remember this feeling. It's amazing.

Then you actually start indexing, which is less amazing. Feel free to e-mail me if you want my experience on this.

Thank you, everyone!

I have not kissed it yet.

I should though, soon. Before the indexing begins.

maybe it will turn into a prince! Or even more interesting, a frog.

I'm pretty sure I kissed my proofs at least twice.
