The revisions of the SSRLP are finished, I think.
The copy editor got back to me. She said she was impressed with how I did, particularly if this was my first of this series of books. (It is.) She had a few questions (easy), needed a couple of new screen shots (not hard), and asked me about resources online for non-business users of PowerPoint (this was the toughie). It took me – oh, let’s say it took about three or four hours to do them all. I stopped in the middle to play Wii with the kids, and that stretched it to about six hours. Meh.
Now it’s off to typesetting. I’ll be getting the proofs back to make any final changes or to provide any additional screen shots they might need. NO rewriting whatever. None. That’s … that’s sort of like sinking a 500-yard hole-in-one. I can’t imagine doing it again.
So, I think the SSRLP is finished. I hope so anyway.
I keep saying that, but each new stagegate brings another learning experience. So I’ll leave it open this time. This aspect of the SSRLP is done, and the next one, should there be a next one, will be exciting, because I get to see how the first published book I’ll ever have will look.
While I wish it were fiction and destined to be a million-seller, it’s still fun as it is.
How was your weekend?
