I will say this: the dimensions of my book are well nigh perfect. Going into it, I was unusually absorbed by getting the length of the book right, having read too many novels that felt either padded out or undernourished. I don't mean in terms of the content so much as physically, although the two have a relation to one another. I wanted it an inch across the spine, just a bit over 300 pages — and by some miracle I seem to have hit that target bang smack in the bullseye. 342 pages. Just over an inch. Perfect.
