We’re closing in on actually shipping Feast — I need to make 4 batches of marshmallows, 3 batches of soap, and at least one more batch of milk toffee. I can do that. It’ll be a nice break from all the computer work that has had me frantically typing for the last week. And I have to write the recipe cards / order them printed. I think I can write them right now, actually, and place the order today. Eep. Getting there!
I am planning on a packing party at my house on October 30th, 7 p.m.. (Local friends, if you’d like to come help pack and be fed a Sri Lankan dinner in thanks, let me know!) Then Stephanie Bailey will be shipping books out on October 31st. Yes, we’re doing ‘shipping in October’ by the skin of our teeth — thank you for your patience!
I’ve learned a lot in this process, and one big aspect is that publishing a book is sort of like a house renovation — everything takes three times as long as you think it will, and costs three times as much! But the results are beautiful. No regrets!
