This project has been in the works since 2008 and I beyond excited that it’s completed. I think it’s a pretty fair statement that publishing a book is a goal for anyone who has done a PhD in a humanities-based discipline and I am over the moon that I can check it off my bucket list! As soon as the euphoria of all this passed, I realized with panic that my editor now needed everything (as in the final version which I was ¼ of the way through doing a final edit on and still needed to finish reading a 300 page book and then add pieces of it to the manuscript; all the images I wanted included, with licensing/reprint rights which I didn’t yet have; and the acknowledgements)…everything!!!! So I spent three days straight locked in my house, eating garbage, living in sweats, and working my ass off to get it all done.
Needless to say, I needed to unwind a bit afterwards! Worn out recently to see two of my favourite bands, Switches and White Lung play. It was an amazing show!
