Lots of stuff happening!
Got the new cover today! The long subtitle has been shortened to “A Memoir”, hope you like it as much as I do.
Also, got my manuscript back from the proof reader, wow, very interesting!
My editors have done a fantastic job and there really wasn’t that much to consider, but as always, commas need to be moved or removed, a few things need to be reconsidered etc. (In a 85.000 word manuscript “a few” commas and edits, actually means a lot of work!)
I enjoyed reading the “style guide” the proof reader wrote for my book: a three pages long document outlining my style and special words that I use, which the next person down the line can go to if a word or phrase sounds a bit odd or confusing (might happen if you read a page out of context); they can just check with the style guide: “oh, it’s a Swedish word”, or “oh, that’s a special expression used by this author”.
And did you notice the changes in my blog? Did you see what I did there? 🙂
A background picture from Bali–you are such amazing friends supporting me on this journey–I wish I could bring you all to my favorite beach in Bali and buy you all a freshly squeezed pineapple & coconut juice and then we’ll sunbathe in our chaise lounges and listen to the waves breaking against the coral reef at the edge of the lagoon and then we jump into the green water and feel the waves carry us in their cool, glittery arms. That’s what I wish I could give you, but at least I can give you a taste of it here in my blog.
See you soon friends & take care!
