A Book Finished in a Month!
What a crazy trip it’s been! Concept complete, planning complete, writing complete, rewrite complete and editing complete. Not to mention a website and covers for paperback and eBook! The finished manuscript is now with the typesetter being arranged nicely on the page. Too late to worry about the content now! The 50K NaNoWriMo target has been hit comfortably, and although there were plenty of times I didn’t think I’d make it, we got the book finished in a month!
As you may recall from Part 1, the thirtieth and final day of the challenge for book writing month is the final day of editing. The final day of everything!. The final 20 pages have been tweaked and the word count dropped again by 95. The final word count is 60,322, and the book is off with the typesetter as I type. I might even treat myself to a day off tomorrow! I have tweaked colours on the cover again, and I think I’m happy – in the 6″x9″ form-factor I have selected it is all nicely readable, and I think stands out from the other books in the category. Once listed, I will provide links to the book, as well as information on sales over time. You will also find the book on www.mmimusicbooks.com – work in progress right now, but it’ll be ready soon.
Day 30 finished. The whole ****** exercise completed! a book finished in a month, and thanks be for that! I guess I’ll probably miss how busy I’ve been for the past month, and it’ll be fun seeing whether the effort was worthwhile – I already feel it has been.
