A Giant Step!
Hi everyone! Just a quick note to let you know that last night we up-loaded the preliminary file of our manuscript and ordered our proofs. For those of you unfamiliar with what a proof is, let me explain.
A proof is an exact replica of the book we intend to put out for publication. The only difference will be a water-mark on the cover that says, “not for resale”. A water-mark is text that is faint lettering across an image to protect it from copyright theft.
The proof copy will allow us to see what the book will look like before we offer it for sale. Sometimes text needs to be re-formatted to fit on the pages. We also want to make sure the cover looks right. Sheesh! So many things to think about! We are improving as we learn, (Thank you, Rod). But, we shall see when they get here. In this case, the proof is in the “proof”, LOL. It’s such a daunting process. Who knew?
We expect the proofs to arrive on or slightly before or after the 25th. That’s Friday!!
We are so excited we can hardly stand it. Then, if everything goes according to plan, fingers crossed; we will hit the live button! We will let you know the minute the book is available for purchase.
Thank you for your support! You guys have been fantastic! Keep warm everyone. We will be in touch!
