I finished my almost-final edit of the book last night around 9:00 PM, then drove home from the office. It’s an almost-final edit because Chareva read the whole thing today and told me she has some minor suggestions to offer. Words here and there, stuff like that.
She now has rather a lot of drawing to do, plus the book layout. Crunch time. I had it in my head that the low-carb cruise is near the end of May, like last year’s. Nope. We set sail on May 1st. So if I’m going to take copies with me – and I’d dearly love to – we need to have a final ready to print in April.
With my part of the book done (or almost done), I’ll be turning my attention to the film version next. Way back when I conceived of this thing, the plan was to release the book with a DVD companion. Then the reality of work, kids, farm, etc. set in. If I wait to have them both finished, lord only knows how many more months it will be. So it’s book first, film later.
I’ll get back to real blogging next week.
