Big news!

Hey everyone,

Well, it's been a ton of work, but I'm happy to report that the book has been written, formatted, edited, printed out at OfficeMax, edited again, indexed, and sent to the printer!

I should have a proof next week (assuming no real backlog from the holiday weekend), and then can order the books for fulfillment, assuming it's all good!

So, today I'm sending out the surveys to those who have hard copy books coming!  Please fill them out ASAP, to help me get everything set and ready to go for when the books arrive.

Now, a bit of bad news..

We hit a snag with the e-book. The company I'd been using before has gone way downhill, and I've had a bunch of complaints about the e-book they did for my last book. I emailed them a couple of times to ask about it, and they haven't responded (and it's been months). So... we won't be going with them.

Still looking for someone else to do the conversions, but it's taking time - the book is actually super complicated, when it comes to converting to ebook. 

So, just a heads up: the ebook will be delayed. 

Finally, it feels a bit weird to send an update without any pictures, so I'll share one that I had to draw for the book.  I don't draw often - and we'd just gotten a new piece of computer equipment to be able to do this - so I'm proud of how it turned out.

 That's about it for now!

Thank you again for all of your support!  Keep an eye out for that survey!

      My mom is an editor who's done some ebook conversion (only for novels, nothing as complex as a cookbook) and she suggested looking at pensite.org (the Professional Editor's Network). As keyword search for conversion brings up someone named Andrea Rud -- maybe a place to start?
