It was a low day last time I wrote, now I'm on a scooter trying to traverse a steep hill, with my deadline being the summit.
Following the panic over no formatter I needed to pin the printer down on deadline dates for printing. She tells me it's not the print run that's the worry but the queue of folk waiting for access to the print run. Her final deadline date for the PDF's of both cover and content is 1st October or I won't make the Halloween launch date, Pressure - Oh yes!
I went to work Tuesday after the bombshell Monday, and because I'm sad, waylaid a work colleague about my publishing woes. She mentioned her partner's son might be able to help. I was amazed when a little note was stuck to my computer screen (who needs email?) giving me his details and e-mail address. He agreed to check the book over and two days later it's back. I'm too scared to look at it yet plus I've karate in 25 minutes and the SI executive meeting first thing tomorrow, then the SI public event after that, but I will build up the courage to view it tomorrow night - fingers crossed.
The book cover came over from Gary and its beautiful, Okay I sent him the wrong blurb etc for the back cover but I hoping it's an easy fix.
This weekend I'll be viewing the content, completing my Bertram's account form, and the printer proposal account, plus popping to Waterstones to update the manager.
On an excited moment, got to go..
