It seems we are to be honored with an Appreciation Day from a group of bloggers on January 31st. I propose to return the favor by releasing JN2 on Lulu.com on that day. I believe all the proofing is done, and the layout looks solid, so if no one has any objections, that's my plan.

LAST MINUTE ARTWORK... there are a few places in the manuscript where a small bit of art might fit in perfectly. If I get appropriate artwork before the 31st, I'll integrate it into the document before the final Lulu.com release. Here's where art pieces would be welcome:

Page 9, lower right-hand corner (or upper right-hand corner; other corners might cause flow issues)
Page 11, across the bottom, would need to be a short, wide piece
Page 13, lower left-hand corner (or upper left-hand corner)
Page 17, lower right-hand corner (or... you get the idea)
Page 23, lower left-hand corner
Page 32, lower right-hand corner
Page 46, across bottom of page
Page 48, lower left-hand corner (monster pic)
Page 49, lower right-hand corner (monster pic)
Page 50, lower left-hand corner (monster pic)
Page 51, across bottom of page (big one)

I do NOT expect to fill all these spaces, nor do we really need to. But I have yet to turn down a nice art piece that fills a space in a layout.

That would be awesome! Can it be ready by 31st?

Lets get some last minute reviews of the text to fix any lingering typos/errata/fixes.
Is it really the end, not some crazy dream?

Strictly speaking, Blazeguard did a "last minute review" back in December. It's probably not perfect (what is?) but it's quite good, so one way or the other it's going out by the 31st.

You should put a deadline for art submissions so people don't wait till the last minute an load you. (assuming people are out there now drawing away feverishly)

Seems that I have been looking at an old release for quite some time. There are loads of stuff that I need to port over to the Field Guide! Nice!

The deadline for art would be tomorrow evening (the 29th); any later than that and I won't have time to do the integration.

SEE?!?! this is why I said "is there anything else I can work on? I would have had 3 or 4 things for you by now.

I'll crank out a few tonight, and have them inked and scanned to you by tomorrow night.

*grumble grumble grumble*

*sets aside two full page spreads of awesome artwork for the Field Guide to crank out some for Monkey Island*

Monkey Island is great! It deserves the extra attention.

Hey, sorry... I announced it here as soon as the idea occurred to me, which was pretty much right after they announced the Appreciation Day thing.

(and I'm sure whatever you turn in will be stellar, as always...)
