It's a pretty great feeling to finish a large project, in a kind of abstract and liberating way. It's an entirely different and equally wonderful feeling to finally be holding the physical final product in your hands. :]
The fellows at Sofawolf Press were kind enough to overnight us a soft and hardcover copy of Across Thin Ice, soon as they received them from the printer. They turned out great! The paper is high quality, the colors are nice, they are heavy, and smell like new stickers. The hardcover is especially meaty and I think I could fend off a hungry bear by using it as a club. Not that I intend to, but, you never know.

The "world map" I made for the interior of the hardcovers turned out really cool. :]
