I wrote One Lonely Degree five year ago but somehow it's still kind of weird for me to imagine that it's all over with. Maybe because I spent such a long time with the characters. I didn't see much of them for several years after finishing the book but then came the editing, coming up with descriptions of Finn and Jersy for Random House to use for casting the cover shoot, pouring over pictures of swimsuits to select some that could be right for Jersy and Finn, and rethinking words and phrases during copy-editing. Writing and publishing a book is a long process and it winds down gradually but it seems One Lonely Degree is finally done, right down to the commas and semi-colons.
I've been posting lots of music related to the book lately and that's something I'm probably not done with! Below I've posted a song that sums up Finn's emotional state for much of One Lonely Degree.
