I'm pushing to complete the book and send it to print next week, but losing the last week to a business trip means the coming weekend will be a real crunch and I may have to delay one more week later than I want. Please, everyone, forgive me for taking so long to get this done . . . but I want the book to be one we can all be proud of.
I scanned through the pages on a color-calibrated system recently and I saw three images that need some color correction, but those were the only images that look like they'll print too dark. So I will tweak those, finish those last three pages, and then make the final corrections. And then it's to print!
TJ Duckett of Kuma Style Designs has been hard at work on the wrap-around cover for the book and he recently shared his WIP. I gave TJ some suggestions, but I think everyone will agree that this is going to be one remarkable cover once it's finished. I feel kinda bad that I have to drop the barcode, titles, and text on this cover image.
