But What Are They Eating?: a blog about food in books. No, not cookbooks—food in FICTION. Everyone talks about what the characters are doing and whom they’re doing it with, yet many forget the most important question: What Are They Eating?

Carolyn Arcabascio muses on illustrating The Moon Coin:

Click HERE or the image directly above to read her post.

..
Richard Due: Looking through a batch of Carolyn Arcabascio sketches, with the intent of winnowing away chaff, is a trying task namely because: THERE ISN’T ANY CHAFF! Time and again, I would put two final candidates side-by-side on my biggest monitor and stare at them for what felt like hours, waiting for one of them to mess up . . . you know . . . sneeze or something, maybe drop a prop Carolyn had drawn in—ANYTHING to make it easier for me to choose! But no dice! It was one of those times, while staring at the screen for what felt like hours, that the smoky voice of Stones rocker Keith Richards first visited me. It was like he was leaning over my shoulder, staring along with me, only his words were from a Terry Gross interview in which he’d been asked to choose a favorite between two Stones classics:  “I love ’em both, honey. Don’t make me cut the babies in half.”

There are twenty-one pieces of chapter art in The Moon Coin. Let me tell you: I spent a lot of time this summer with Keith Richards’ voice in my head talking about cutting babies in half. And I can’t wait to do it all over again on The Dragondain. But this time I’m going to go for summoning the stern voice of Mary Poppins. I have a hunch she’ll be an excellent decision maker. 😉

Once the book is properly formatted within Indesign, it can be exported to the various formats needed to go to Amazon, Apple, and Barnes and Noble. Each format has its quirks and bugs—the iPad has trouble centering text; the Kindle doesn’t know what to do with DropCaps: and the Nook likes to chop off the last hyphenated syllable of the last word in a sentence (centered text only; go figure); just to name a few. Of the three, the iPad currently offers the most robust formatting.

Here is a screen shot of the finished EPUB file running in iBooks on my iPad:

I made a modest order to start off. So, if you know in advance that you really, really want one, let me know size and qty. so I can get an idea of whether or not I need to order more. Thank you! I want to see the quality first hand before I price them, but I’m thinking a ballpark figure of $14 (give or take $2).
