I have 48 pages to go.
Did well over 200 yesterday. So I’m getting a late start, but I’m here.
Here’s the list of what remains to be done before the book goes out (this to explain why finishing type-in today does NOT mean the book will be for sale tomorrow.)
Once I’ve completed type-in, I have to sit down and read through the whole thing. Why? Because along with fixing all the previous error Matt and I could find, I scrapped three chapters and several solid chunks of other material, and replaced it with brand-new, never-edited material.
When I’ve smoothed out the last infelicities, I have to format the books for PDF/Print.
Then I have to send ARCs (advance reader copies) to my list of reviewers.
I have to do corrections on the print version from mistakes captured by my ARC readers, and publish the print book. It takes a while to work through the system, so to have the print version available at more or less the same time the Kindle, ePub, and PDF versions go live, I have to publish it first.
I’ll wait a couple more days for ARC readers to get in their corrections (by the way, not all ARC readers send me corrections. Just a few do.), then do final corrections and formatting on the Kindle, ePub, and PDF versions.
I’ll then make the book available on all platforms. Finally, I’ll put up the songs and the Minecraft Space Station.
And then I’ll take the rest of December, and possibly the first week of January, OFF. 😀
Good luck with your words. Kick ass!
