The final requested edits to the cover artwork has been sent to Detra. I'm just waiting for the final version now.
Last night I finished the edits from the first editor and will start on the edits from the second editor tonight. I plan to finish those up this weekend if at all possible. After that, I will do the final formatting on the book and submit it to Createspace.
Once we get the artwork from Detra, we need to lay out the cover and submit it to Createspace for review. If they say both the interior and exterior files are good, we'll order the proof copy of the novel.
What follows after the proof comes in?
The two proof copy editors comb through the book for any last revisions.
What does this all mean?
We're probably on track for an early March publication date.
Can I get an amen?
