The New Creative Artist is in the warehouse.

It won't be long before my book will be on the shelves. There's some processing involved before they start shipping. I don't know how long that takes, but I'm guessing a week or so. Yesterday I picked up the complimentary copies I'm giving to the 105 artists who let me use their work in the book. I live less than a half hour from the warehouse. Norm, the warehouse guy who greeted me at the loading dock, has loaded books for me since 1985 at the Cincinnati location. I guess we have a symbiotic relationship: I write 'em, Norm loads 'em. I'm lucky to live near my publisher, North Light Books (about 40 miles), so I can get to meet some of the people who work on the books at every stage of production. Somehow I don't think it would be as much fun to do everything by phone and email.
