just when you think the day can't get any worse…

…it gets inestimably better.

Today, after a day at the dayjob which could be best described as ugly, I arrived home to a package. Two, actually. One was the new DAAS DVD (which, let's face it, you all knew I was going to shell out for, didn't you?), and the other… well, I'll give you a clue.

It's printed. It's bound. It has my name on it. And lo, it is SHINY.

Let the record show that these sorts of surprises are excellent. I approve.

Since my ever-thoughtful editor also included a cover flat for me, this means I can belatedly deliver on my promise to reveal the cover. (Click to see it larger!)

Oh dear lord, people. It's a book.

  1. WOW. I love the cover. And holding your own real printed book in your hand is such a rush, yes?

  2. Thanks everyone! Holding my own book is indeed a rush…but there's a little terror mixed in there too. Now it's open for judgement… 😯 Ah well, that is beyond my control. I shall just pet the shiny, shiny book. And frame one of the cover flats!

    @Rachel: DAAS! Go! Buy! More seriously, I don't quite know what's on the disc yet (went to the gym to work out some of the day's ugliness), but I think it's their Big Gig appearances. I bought mine through Devoted, but all music stores should have it by now. :mrgreen: (I loves me some DAAS.)

  3. I want the DAAS! I'm pretty sure you owe me some *nod*

    Also, wwooooooooooooooohooooooooooo! on the cover – every stage of seeing your book emerge is vicariously awesome 🙂
