So the copy for the upcoming book has been proofed and some positive feedback given!
Before I send it to the design/prepress person – the talented Paulien Bats – I have to finalise the page size/ book dimensions, work out what formats we will be publishing in (what I can afford), finalise the title, and work out if I will invite someone to work on a preface and who that person will be.
I am very excited about what Paulien will now be doing with the book, but have to make sure I have some clear information for her. She is going to be doing some design and illustration which we have already had some preliminary chats about. How exciting!
At the same time I have been working on the Ripple Poetry site and sharing some other poems which are not going to be in the book, but which give some idea of what it might be like. I am working out some videos and other special things to do in the lead up to publication. So much to do but I’m feeling so rapt to have a book on it’s way.
There’s lots to be done still, but we’re well on our way!
