I am clearly in a love-hate relationship with this book project. And I feel myself spending a lot more time on the “hate” end of the spectrum, more than the love.
Currently in the process of compiling the multiple short stories into one text and formatting them for both the print book and ebook editions. I have to make a decision on the dimensions of the print book. I’m considering between 5.5″ x 8.5″, or 6″ x 9″, seems insignificant, but the dimensions of the book help to determine how thick or thin the book will be as well as its final page count, factors which significantly affect the look and feel of the book.
My book cover artist also needs the final dimensions so he can begin his work, and of course, I want to get that done as soon as possible. The artist I’ve enlisted to help me with the cover is one of immense talent and has illustrated a couple of stories for me in the past.
But in order to get to that, I have to get through this, so it’s back to work for me.
