Some think that now that the book is ready to publish, it will be quick and painless to put it all together. That is not usually the case. There are quite a few details that need to be hashed out, especially when working with a book designer. And, invariably, there is always more edits to be done.
It is not a quick, lay-it-out-format-slap-a-cover-on-it-and-publish type of process.
It is more of a collaborative-back-and-forth type of process.
Expect delays. Expect revisions. Expect multiple revisions.
There is something about taking a written piece and converting it into a book that changes it. The look, the flow, the arrangement - it is during that process that an author can expect to notice things they have not noticed before. Edits that were missed in the editing process. It is the one last chance to tweak it before it is out there for the world to see.
This book took approximately six weeks to complete. The artist would catch something in the artwork that needed a little polishing, edits were made, edits were made again. Proof ordered. Fix a few more things. Proof ordered again. Just like writing and then rewriting (revision), then editing, then rewriting (revision), the design part of the project has its own process of revising.
Working as a team to bring it all together.
When it is complete - it is a heady feeling of accomplishment.
