Great news! We finally have a beautiful and professional-caliber cover design (I say we because it was definitely a collaborative effort!), and I’m very happy with it. It will be posted here in the coming days. (For a sneak preview, visit my book’s Facebook group.)
In about two weeks I’ll get the proof copy of the manuscript for the honest-to-God final edit (basically just getting rid of a few typos and stray adverbs if I find them). Ten days after that I’ll get my review copy — the first copy of the First Edition of Fast Times in Palestine. A physical manifestation of the past three and a half years of work. If nothing is amiss, it will go on sale online shortly thereafter, and bookstores will follow.
In other words, if nothing goes wrong, my book will be published around May 23.
I can’t wait.
