Well the next test print copy of Focused Fandom: Fanart, Fanartists, and Careers is queued up. I found a few errors that I wanted to fix, but not many. A few cover issues, a few internal formatting issues, and some diddly stuff. My editor, Ellen, did a pretty damn good job I have to say.
I almost forgot what this is like, editing a print copy, and now I remember why it was such a pain. When you’re down to asking yourself about 1/8 inch in a margin or how to space a line break for a bullet point, the fun somehow goes right out the window and falls to its death.
It’s a 346+ page MONSTER right now, and will probably retail for $24.95 or so. This thing is freaking huge.
Oh, and really? Good gift material, just sayin’ . . .
Next up, looking over the test print copy of Focused Fandom: Cosplay, Costuming, and Careers!
