It is done.
Leastways, one of the last remaining milestones completed.
The copy editing (from my ever-fabulous copy editor, Joyce Mochrie) of The Forest Ghost has been reviewed.
The manuscript has been typeset with the front pages and illustrations added.
The project numbers and ISBNs established, and the Library of Congress Control Number requested and received.
Oh, there is still much to do, no rest for the weary, but I hope the story of Arthur McCutcheon’s youth—the struggles and triumphs, the questions that needed to be answered—has been done justice.
In the end, only you can determine if said intent was met.
Yes, I’ll listen to the story read aloud one last time before it goes to my self-publisher—but if all goes well, that could be this weekend. The normal production highs and lows will surely ensue, but a late September release seems realistic at this point.
Thanks for your patience. So close now.
