Last night the books were ready and I drove out to Bellevue College with a box of pumpkin chocolate chip cookies to see my classmates again, share some food, and sign our books.
It was a lot of fun and the book looks great. Print on Demand is exciting technology.
So that was a nice way to spend a Monday night. It also marked the first time I've seen my name in print (for prose), which only happened because I helped do it myself.
(The book would've happened without me, but if I hadn't taken the class or submitted my story, my work wouldn't have been printed. That's what I mean by "helped do it myself.")
Funny how that works.
