This is part of a series about my experiences in publishing a book.The series starts here.
It’s been a long time between posts here.. So long, in fact, that I’ve begun receiving mail asking it I’m OK. I am indeed. However, I’ve been occupied. Many of you know that there’s been a large forest fire along the California central coast for the past few weeks. That’s affected me in at least two ways. First, my family and I have had to make preparations to defend our house if necessary, and leave if it becomes too dangerous. Along those lines, the worst seems to have passed.
I’ve also been keeping a blog going about the “progress” of the fire and the progress of the firefighters. I repurposed the old Bleeding Edge blog temporarily:
It’s been rewarding, but it’s taken a lot of time.
But that’s not what this post is about. I have exciting nesa about the Staccato book: it goes on-press next week. I won’t be able to be there to kibitz, but Jerry Takigawa is going up to Vancouver and will supervise.
The final proofing process went like this:
- Hemlock sent us a new MatchPrint copy f the book with our corrections in place.
- Jerry found a few more problems, and asked Hemlock to fix them.
- Hemlock sent up links to their website, where they had placed final, final high and low-resolution PDFs.
- Jerry and I signed off on them
After the book is printed, Hemlock will send it to the bindery in Arizona. I’m not sure how long it will take to bind all the books, but it seems like we’re getting close.
