Final Proofs Returned, Back Cover Okayed for The Tears of Isis; Pre-Orders Open on PMMP Site
The countdown continues with less that two weeks to go before the announced May 15 date for THE TEARS OF ISIS (cf. May 1, et lots of al.). Will we make it? Well, all sorts of bizarre things could happen between now and then (coincidentally a different publisher mentioned legends of strange printer errors and his relief that none had occurred in a book his company had just published), but if it’s late it won’t be because we haven’t tried to keep it on time. And so, late last night, I finished my second pass at the corrected proof sheets and, finding only one item that needed to be changed (this being in newly added front matter which hadn’t been in the original proofs), sent it back to Lori Michelle at Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing. Another milestone passed — so many things that need to be done! And then, in a reply to her reply that she’d received the correction, I also okayed the cover/back cover design, received earlier that day, including proofreading the back cover blurb. So many things. . . .
And then one more thing: Perpetual Motion Machine Publishiig is now officially taking pre-orders for THE TEARS OF ISIS. The price for the printed edition is $12.95 with $3.50 for postage — so be first on your block to have your own copy, and all that good stuff.
