Woohoo!! My little hand-bound limited edition book of essays, These Ozark Hills , is hot off the press, in my hands and on its way out the door. I laid out the signatures this morning (Saturday), gathered them, signed, dated and numbered them (there will be a total of 250 copies) and mailed off the first orders. What a rush. Most times when someone’s work is published, it is in a decidedly hands-off process for the author. I wanted something of mine out there until the music arrives, and this is part of what I do – make stories, and tell them. This small volume (105 pages) contains the best of my radio series, plus a few longer pieces, and is bound by hand in the Japanese fashion. Here are some photos of the process, taken by Sarah Denton., who helped me invoice and pack the books for shipment.
