Ferrett Steinmetz: Touching A Dream

Behind every new book published is, not only a happy publisher but also, a delighted author. Some journeys to publication are longer than others, but no matter how long it takes the result is still the same: physical proof of what was once an idea, formed, created, and worked on, probably over and over again. As Ferrett Steinmetz approaches publication day (3 March) for his debut novel, Flex, yesterday Ferrett realised a dream: author copies of his very own book arrived. The wonderful moment was captured on video, but I do warn you…it has been known to induce some tears. Congratulations, Ferrett!
