Dolly's coming, all is good.
What are you up to Eamon? Have you forgotten to wish all your lovely supporters a Happy New Year? It’s not too late.
Bah humbug. Happy New Year.
Do you have an update to share with us?
Yes yes yes. The editing has gone very well. Like a dream. Mary, appointed by Unbound, has been a total joy to work with, and I’m not just saying that because she likes Dolly Considine’s Hotel, but because her suggested small changes and her eye for detail has been just amazing. She’s even corrected my spelling of Irish place names. Imagine.
I feel very well looked after, and so does Dolly.
I used to call myself aesthetically challenged until I found out it means not outstandingly pretty, rather than not having a clue about design and colour choices. Designers working for Unbound have come up with their initial design for the cover. I consulted with someone (you know who you are) and together we put together feedback, and I am hopeful that we will have an even more exciting draft cover again shortly. But it’s not too late if you have fancy notions….. I would love to see them.
The final design will be shared with you as soon as it is agreed. By then Unbound will be getting ready to announce the day in July when Dolly will be available in bookshops and online. I can feel the excitement building in me already, and I hope you are feeling it too, after all it is thanks to your support and cash that it is happening.
Don’t forget to let people know that anyone who pre-orders a copy of Dolly now can still get their names listed in the supporters’ page. Next stop the cover reveal. Stay safe. Eamon
