I got my book, ‘Prisoner of the Wizard’s Harem’ in the mail yesterday. If you heard a piercing high pitched squeal of delight yesterday, that was me.

This a picture of it still in the box. I have to say it is one of the best packaged books I have received in a while. The box opened up like a chest full of literary treasure. I may be exaggerating a bit.

First of all, isn’t that a gorgeous cover by George Sportelli? He really nailed it. I kept staring at it all last night. The thing is glossy.

The first thing I did was start flipping pages and checking out the headers. All of the choices are numbered and a page will have anywhere from one to three choices on it. My solution was to put a header on every page much like a dictionary page. On the left page, the header is on the upper left side and on the right page it is on the upper right side. The thing is, Word really hates letting you do a different header on every page. I had to do these manually and it took forever. It was all worth it when I flipped through and saw everything was where it was supposed to be.

Right now I need to read through the book and fix any typos. On Monday it goes on sale at LULU in both printed form and an electronic version. I will then start on making a print version of Cell Phone Slave and Thigh Vs. Thigh. Those should go a hell of a lot quicker as they don’t involve any choice diagrams.

  1. I was wondering what that girlish noise was! Thanks for clearing that up.


    ps – the book looks lovely, can’t wait to see it on sale!

  2. Mad- It is one sexy book.

  3. The first time you pull a book out of the box and realize you wrote it, it is a tiny literary orgasm. Peeling back that plastic and tossing aside that cardboard, I remember holding my breath as I fingered along the cover, smelled the pages, and ran my thumb along the paper edges. I fell in love that day and I can only hope you did the same.

    And I will buy a copy, I must now. That is a sexy-looking book.

  4. Brilliant!

    While I’m not big on wizards, I’m a huge fan of prisoners and harems. 2 out of 3 interests say buy, buy.

    It looks first rate. You’ve a right to be proud.
