Revisions From The Publisher

 

 

IMG_0148Last Friday my publisher sent me a file with the suggested edits for the book. I didn’t open it until Saturday for I didn’t want to freak out. That was good thinking. When I finally opened it I went through the pages and agreed with just about all her edits if not all of them. That was not the problem. The comments she left in the side made me realize oh boy this will take some time. Something that is in short supply here at the Williams household. With the book coming out in August it is truly crunch time.

Some of her comments will be easy fix. Some will involve some serious wizardry of words. I can do it I know I can. But it comes down to the deadline. One of the most important deadlines I have ever had. I am trying to remain calm but chaos is hitting me with the book cover release, the book being released, the book signings I am trying to set up and the marketing that is involved in any venture that you want to make successful.

I will just work on it one page at a time with a Pepsi by my side and just remind myself how far I have come and this is all part of the process. Okay that is a long as heck mantra I need a shorter one. I will go back to my mantra I used a while ago. Dream big. But to dream big one has to take what comes along with it the ups and downs. It will be worth it, I just have to get pass this mountain in front of me. I am sure there will be another one after wards but that is okay. Every step is a learning block for me for the next go round.

I can do this.

  1. Just take a deep breath before you dig in. I’m surprised that your deadline is so tight. You still haven’t reviewed galleys which is usually the last step before you go to press.

    • Thanks 🙂 It is really a self imposed deadline. My publisher said there is no rush and is leaving it my capable hands. Glad she is confident. But she told me after I send these off they will send me an electronic copy of my entire book for me to look over and approve. Once I do that it is off the printers.
      The bio,acknowledgements, dedication and picture has been sent. The front cover and one of the illustrations has been approved. So I believe I am very close to the end but what do I know this is my first go around. 🙂
