Printing and Editing
Aug - 02 - 2009
I’ve had my hands full lately. I’m working 10-11 hours days, seven days a week at the old day job, and I’m trying to find time to edit and get a printer lined up in the few hours of the day I have left. Though it goes slowly, it goes well.
I’m about 2/3 done with my edit and so far I’m quite pleased with all the changes. There have been a few scenes added, and a few deleted, and a few trimmed down or expanded. As a whole the manuscript is far stronger now than it’s ever been and I can’t wait to get it out there so people can read it.
I’ve had discussions with a couple of printing companies and it looks like I’m going to end up going with Quebecor. They come highly recommended, I like their prices and, after inspecting a example book made to my desired specs, I’m satisfied that the final binding and printing will be a high quality product that I’ll be proud to put my name on.
The next step is to get all the paperwork filled out and set up a Rabbit Room Press account with them. Then it’ll be a matter of getting the edit finalized so typesetting can begin. I’m aiming for a December 1st release, which seems a long way off until I consider all the work I’ve got to get done in order to make that happen.
Stay tuned, I hope to get another Letter to Peter up sometime this week as well as the next chapter of The Wander Beyond
