The iUniverse Design Services Associate sent me the front cover. Looking good! Now, book production starts in earnest.

Received the full edit of my manuscript. Now it’s time to put nose to grindstone, and for the very last time edit, rewrite, and finish my manuscript. Yay!
Received sample edit, and they’re waiting for my response. This is a toughie. I’ve been on the editor side before, but it’s my first time as an author (except for structural editing, which is much more fun and less intensive). I want to scream “don’t touch my work!” but of course that won’t make for […]
