final tweaking of the blogging book
I got the final reader reports for my Blogging book back last week, and have till next Wednesday to completely finish up the manuscript. With the manuscript completed by Christmas, my lovely editor Andrea Drugan figures we can get all the bits of the copy-editing and proofing that I need to be involved in finished before the baby’s here in April, which would certainly be a Very Good Thing. The idea of having two or three weeks to go through a copy-edited manuscript with a tiny baby needing constant attention is not at all appealing. Also, this means the book’s highly likely to come out on schedule, in the autumn of 2008.
There are of course lots of suggestions for changes in the manuscript (did you ever read a manuscript or book that you wouldn’t have written differently yourself?), but the reader reports are mostly very positive, which is great! And there are some tweaks that’ll be good improvements, too, which is great.
