Before sitting down at my wife's design desk to sign these sheets to be bound in the exclusive hardcover edition of THE NEW FLESH, as a way to celebrate, I made it rain, tossing them in the air while I howled gleefully. Then, almost immediately, I panicked. I scrambled about the room picking these valuable sheets up before they were stepped on, or attacked by the cat, or the dogs rolled in them.
Once collected, I sat down to sign each page--carefully, of course.
Yeah, that's my signature. So what?
I used the same green pen to sign each sheet that I used to edit the original manuscript.
Actually, all kidding aside, this was a special moment for me. For all those who are lucky enough to get this limited, signed version of THE NEW FLESH, know that it comes with my deepest appreciation.
