Book Publishing Process: Designing Ain’t My Strong Suit (4th in series)

I have no clue. Unlike my friend Joy who could describe the cover for her book while she was still writing it, I have no inkling, no concept, no idea for my book cover. So I wasn’t the least excited when I received the email from my production manager saying it was time to design the cover. Egad! Couldn’t an editor just read the book and come up with something nice??

My manuscript came to me with Microsoft Word’s Track Changes >Final Showing Markup feature activated so I could see the editor’s changes.  The editor gave me proofreading instructions, i.e. how to make my corrections, comments and additions to the manuscript so that I returned a manuscript showing both the editor’s initial changes in red and my input in blue.  I was surprised to learn I didn’t have to accept the edits from the editor.  I could reject any changes (insert NO CHANGE) or question any edits [insert COMMENT].  This was such a relief for me since as a writer, I know what message I wanted to convey and didn’t want that message changed.  Although a publisher’s editor is a professional, that person could Continue reading “Book Publishing Process – What They Said (3rd in series)”
