Time is about to kick my butt (#SFWApro)

51-zssisf7l-_sx348_bo1204203200_The proofs for Now and Then We Time Travel arrived Monday. By email, which is a new approach, but makes sense: I only print out the pages that need fixing, rather than McFarland printing out the whole manuscript. Hopefully it won’t be too many. Fingers crossed.

And then comes indexing. Even with the index already alphabetized, that’s going to be a job. It always is.

So everything I’m working on is now on hold until the book is done.

Of course it’s hardly my first rodeo, but I’ve never had a book cover quite so many films before. So I have a lot more work to do–checking out each name for accuracy is a lot tougher than just checking every paragraph for spelling errors (and with names, it’s easy to miss a spelling error). So I’m a little nervous. But only a little.

The good news? It’s due at the printers 12/22. So the pressure’s on, but that means it’s so very, very, very close to being an actual finished book that I hold in my hands.

Woot!
