SVC work: Sent SFBOL the Batch 6 art. The art came in for the CL48 cover, which theoretically meant we could go to press in 7 days, but there were interesting complications. Mike only works Monday and Tuesday so we had to get the covers no later than Monday night the 17th, but the cover wasn’t quite ready (had to finalize the back cover and recolorize the logos on the front cover), plus we had to have Simone do the advertising thing that goes on the same sheet of cardstock. I am holding my breath that the printer can deliver on that schedule, because if not, it means things will take longer.

We had a "stop the presses moment" when (in the act of handing Jean the stack of finished pages) I noticed a typo in the table of contents; Leanna graciously let us fix it. I set up the file for one chapter of CL49 and starting putting stuff in it.
