The printing company informed me today that I made a couple of minor hiccups on the cover: (1) I calculated the spine width as 172 pages instead 170; I actually knew this prior to submission but thought the difference was negligible; think again, it seems. (2) I’m also told the black areas on the cover need very specific CMYK values. Aargh! I’ve had to resubmit the cover and pay an extra 22 pounds. Never mind. We’re almost there. I’ll just have to contain this nervous excitement for a few more days.
In the meantime, I think it’s about time I released a little of the book’s content. Here’s a nine-page excerpt: the introduction plus chapter one. Enjoy!
