my designer is The Queen.

I want to send him an effing tiara.

If I can't bear to read my OWN book because the font hurts my eyes, there is a significant problem with the marketability of the book, no matter how effing artistic his gutters and 2 point letting is.

If I think the font on the sample pages is too small, NO ONE ELSE'S OPINION SHOULD MATTER!!! I am the EFFING EDITOR and these things are MY EFFING DISCRETION!!!

That's all.

hmm. throw the book at him!!! or ask him if he planned to market the book with a tiny hand held magnifying glass with a light, because that's what people will need in order to read it. and unless the book is called "as we are getting older" and this is part of the gimmick, that will fail miserably.

speaking of, the other day, on the bus, i sat at a seat under a big bright bus light. then the bus started and he turned all the lights off! so then i whipped out my phone, and kept pressing buttons so that the blue light would stay on so i could read. the guy next to me thought i was weird.

Reading on buses is an important part of the commute. Shame on that driver.

damn artsy people...when it comes to their work, they do not respond to change or direction well at all

A little unclear about the purpose of the exercise, perhaps?
