Oh my dear friend, I’m so sorry that getting ‘Words on the Street’ was such a ghastly experience for you. Getting a book into print can be a devilish thing to wrestle with, all the worse for one feeling so out of control for too much of the time. Peter and I have had a fair share of printing horror experiences over the years, and I have to say that it never gets any easier, even when the printer is competent and on your side. (I fear we had many problems with my monograph, even though the publisher was top drawer!) The process is just so variable, and there are many traps waiting for the unwary. (AND the wary!) Still, you’ve survived to the end, so well done. I do hope that you have a sense of pride in the finished book, and that the wretchedness of the experience hasn’t tainted your feelings toward it too much.
