file this under: ain't technology grand?!

See this?
It's my book! 160 pages, 219 great big image files and so many hours of my life, all in that tiny little thingy in my palm.

And see this?

The tiny little thingy above just arrived at the publisher this morning . Yet you can already pre-order. Amazing!

Also amazing: how hard it was for me to sit in my office for a solid week of doing all the final computer work on the images. I am simply not a sit still indoors person. What saved me was listening as I worked, to hours & hours of brilliant backdated podcasts, from This American Life, Cast On and Its a Purl, Man. Thanks Ira, Brenda and Guido, my virtual heroes, for keeping me in my seat.

Lovely cover! I'm throwing it on my Amazon Wish List. (Birthday in a few weeks and then family tells me that I'm not allowed to buy books until after the New Year.)

It is amazing, isn't it, that a whole book fits on that little do-hickey.
