PROGRESS OF THE BOOK

UPDATES
DUST JACKET DESIGN

December 18, 2014 - Work on the Dust Jacket Design began.

February 23, 2015 - Work on the Dust Jacket completed.

Here's the complete dust jacket design. On the left is the front cover and on the right, the back cover. Two companies worked to produce these wonderful designs: Chandler Book Design & 2Graphics. The first began the artwork and other, completed it. So credit will be given to both companies. These are definite images that you'll  see when the book is published. The work on the wording for the sleeves, sometimes called the blurb, is in progress. The sleeves are the inside flaps of the dust jacket or wrapper over a hard cover book.

COPY EDITING

The commission to do the copy editing of my book has been given to a company called 2QT Publishing (website: 2qt.co.uk) and is expected to take between 4 - 6 weeks to complete. Among the tasks the copy editor has to do are reading the typescript and checking for grammatical, spelling and syntactical errors. 

August 2015: The copy editing is still in progress. Its completion, somewhat delayed, will be announced here.
