I’m new to publishing. Even though I’m currently writing my 5th book, the Hatbox Murders will be the first one published.
Over a hear ago, Barking Rain Press assigned me to a wonderful editor, and we spent 6 months going over the manuscript. We did 3 complete in-depth passes. After that, two more editors came on board and we all went through it again.
I thought the editing was finished. Silly me. I just received the final “Final for Print,” proof. Now, there are 5 of us on the project, all reviewing the Hatbox Murders cover-to-cover.
It really helps me appreciate (and maybe even dread 😉 all the work that goes into a traditionally published book.
And it keeps me really, really busy.
