I’m starting with words written during Insurgent last night. Now that it’s out of the way, I can ask a question that just popped into my head.
Getting the paperback ready takes longer. Why do I try to get that first when I could get the ebook up for sale and the print book could follow when I have it done? I suppose it’s to get my skills with print books down so print books are easier to do, and then everything could go up at the same time? I don’t know.
I’m talking about A Brief History right now, by the way. It’s been so long since April, I’m honestly not certain what state things are in. Maybe everything is perfect and ready and just need a quick once-over before putting up for sale? Or maybe there’s quite a bit of work yet to do. I just don’t remember.
This is why I shouldn’t wait so long after finishing before publishing. Ugh. I’m not even sure why it didn’t happen immediately. I’ve been carrying around the proof copy since it arrived, ready to do the proofing.
Oh well. I’m going to get it done now. Or at least look at it for the next three and a half hours or so. Then I’ll give the laptop back to the kids if they want it.
