Just an update for those interested. I received the galleys of Avempartha, that is the book laid out in the form it will appear in the book. I spent a week going over it, proofing for any errors that might have slipped in, and sent it back out. The next time I see it should be when it arrives via UPS in a sealed carton with a glossy cover and crisp pages. So like the rest of you I am now waiting too.
