I worked through proof corrections and some additional minor copy-editing last week and processed the cover file and interior file over the weekend. It was an ordeal to say the least, but I THINK it’s going to come out nicely. The cover is striking, though I’m concerned it might be too bright in CMYK. We’ll see shortly. I ended up having to reduce font size slightly in order to maintain our page count while bringing the page header down a bit to comply with Lightning Source requirements. That took almost all day to accomplish, as each text block had to be reset on each page and each section of text re-streamed and checked for orphans.
At any rate, I’m glad that’s done. It will be easier next time around, I think. I’m looking forward to mailing off contributor copies and reviewer copies.
Tomorrow, I hope to get back to work on my novel, at least for a few days. Still waiting on our agent regarding the collaborative fantasy with Sue. I’m thinking of changing my middle initial from “V” to “W” (for “Waiting”).
