Wow, I’m still just wild about the illustrations… and I’m marveling again at how wonderful it is to actually see all of these ideas that have come to fruition. I am so pleased!
GREAT NEWS! The shipment from Latvia arrived! Took long enough – that’s for sure… but the box and it’s valuable contents were totally unscathed. Sent an email to Aija to let her know, and she replied to tell me that she had been praying for one week straight, in the hopes that the shipment would arrive safely…well that explains why I hadn’t heard from her at all during the prior week!
I had two choices on the book’s finished look today: glossy or matte. I chose matte… I’m very close to giving the book the “go-ahead.”
Sent an email to Aija and she doesn’t seem too concerned about the illustrations getting to me. She seems pretty confident about the security of the package – although I can somehow feel that she too is a bit concerned about the shipment getting here. Well, being concerned is a trait that sometimes we can’t ignore.
Okay so now I’m getting a tad bit worried – still haven’t received the package from Latvia! These are my original copyrighted illustrations and if something were to happen to them…well that’s just not going to happen. I need to call the printer again.
