Dear Musicfriends and Mara Supporters,
In the last month I've been quiet. That's because I've been busy getting this book ready. Remember, I'm a self-publisher. Booklocker is producing the book, but I'm the one who has to prepare the manuscript. That means:
Editing down to the last detail, checking for spelling and punctuation, checking again, making formatting decisions on indentations, picking a font, getting a LCCN, checking for spelling and punctuation AGAIN, writing an author's bio, writing a blurb for the back cover, communicating with the cover designer, and a few hundred other little things.
At this point, nearly all of that is done as of today. The book will go into production in a couple of days and, after I've seen it, proofed the publishing version, and signed off, hopefully, will be released in a month or so.
It's a slow process.
But very fulfilling. And speaking of fulfilling, when I get my copies, I'll send you yours!
