Serve the Lord with celebration! Come before him with shouts of joy! Ps. 100:1-2 CEB
Today the hardcover edition of Whippoorwill Calls arrived. Immediately I turned to the inside to see how the red Conte’ crayon figure drawings appeared in premium color and discovered they are better defined than in the paperback in standard color. I let out a sigh of relief. The hardcover passed the test and was approved for distribution.
What I didn’t expect was how the ridges and sharper edges of the hardcover would feel beneath my fingertips, or how the weight of the book would make it feel more substantial in every respect.
In printing, the company added a heavier blank page at the front and back giving Whippoorwill Calls a finished appearance.
I am filled with joy and gratitude to the Lord for directing my steps and opening doors for me to walk through not on tiptoes but confidently.
It sounds like the hard copy is going to be a collectors item. Glad to hear you have approved it! So what some people do to mark a ceremonial day is to place a Postal Stamp on it, maybe behind the cover in an appropriate location, and ask to Postal Service to round stamp half way over the stamp, and half way over the inside cover. I would also ask them to be very neat and precise when doing so. That way you will have indisputable proof that it is one of the first copies off the press.
Other people have been known to place something in a Registered Letter or Package and mail it to themselves, then never open it unless you have to go to court to prove something in front of a judge. Can you tell I worked for the Postal for over 40 years? 🙂
Thank you, Parl for your comment. Today, I will take my copy to the post office and ask to have this done. May you enjoy your latte’ this morning. Warm regards, g
Many many congratulations to you Gabrielle. It’s never too late to achieve your dreams. I am making my way to Amazon to order my copy.
Thank you, Lynne.
