I don’t mean to go on and on about it, but the book looms so large in my mind these days, it’s the main current running through my life and we’re in the final week, Been agonizing over the cover and title page for several weeks, a dozen mock-ups. Yesterday my friend Louie showed up to help me, and he hung in with me all day as we tried dozens of things. Louie says what he thinks, and it’s great getting fresh perspective. At the end of the (hot) day, we went down to the beach. I went swimming; the tide was coming out of the lagoon fast and the water was warm, maybe 60º, and I
swam with the tide, felt like I was flying.
This morning I came out and surveyed the results (+ the carnage, shown here) and it’s lookin pretty good. Lew and Rick are coming in today and the 3 of us will work on it. By the time we get it done, the cover will be the work of 5-6 people.
