Good morning! I hope all of you here in the U.S. had a lovely Labor Day Weekend. Everybody else: You're not alone. Yesterday was a full work day for me, too.
But it was a good one. Check it out: The design of the Monster Book is complete! The last few pages took a lot longer than I thought, but they're now full of fun little goodies and surprises for you. I had to make sure that the small type lovers and graph aficionados among you will have something to look forward to, after all. And who would ever want to buy a book without lavishly illustrated end papers?
A big, honking PDF is on its way to my editor, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for nips and tucks rather than wholesale edits. When I get my marked up pages in two weeks I still have to hand-letter the pull quotes on each page, but I'll do it gladly. Why? Oh, come on now... don't play coy with me. You know why! Because 344 LOVES YOU
