The Georgian Menagerie: Final Proofs have been approved – published next month! :)

Full steam ahead for publication next month!

The final proofs were sent to me this week, and I have just signed off on them.

The cover is very nicely designed and appealing – I’m looking forward to holding the completed book in my hands next month.

I’ll be posting in the near future about the book, related events, and short publications.

The image attached to this post is quite appropriate for The Georgian Menagerie, though sadly it is not included in the book. If you look carefully in the porch, you can see a green parrot in a brass cage.  A touch of the exotic in this very English pastoral scene…
