Update 7 for Get Off My Lawn!


Thank you for subscribing for updates for A Whim Away's upcoming new book, Get Off My Lawn! I am excited to share that we are nearing the end of the journey.

Last Wednesday, I received the final version of the manuscript from Pam Sewell, my copyeditor and proofreader. She was very quick with my 9,300 word story, taking only a week to do both types of edits. That's the advantage of having familiarity with the intricacies of editing, and having lots of manuscripts to practice on.

Then, I imported the final manuscript into Scrivener. I did have a few hiccups though. First, my italicised text weren't in italics anymore. Secondly, all of the newline characters were different to what Scrivener was expecting, and I was getting the hash '#' character after every paragraph! It was easy enough to fix both issues, albeit manually. I can't imagine doing this on a longer piece of work...

I recompiled the manuscript into a Microsoft Word document to check everything came across into the final manuscript. I did this using the "combine documents" feature, which marks the differences between two documents. I compared the manuscript I sent off to Pam, with the manuscript with everything imported. Quite handy, as I found some errors.

After having done all of the fiddly work and I was certain everything went across, I sent the word document manuscript to Bronwyn at Spineless Wonders, who is producing the audiobook for me. She produced the audiobook for Cupid's Kiss, and I was elated with the result. I'm happy to say we are booked to record Get Off My Lawn! at the end of the month.

There are too many updates this week... when things are a bit quieter, in the next newsletter I will talk more about finalising the cover design, the print-on-demand and ebook uploads, as well as the Wordpress updates.

Please feel free to share this email with your friends. I have included the subscription link for them here. The next update will come in 7-14 days.

'Til next time!
Anna Ceguerra.
