First Author Review!


I feel as though I've been led into the inner sanctum of some secret society ... I mean, do you know what goes into publishing a book?  Neither do I ... but I'm becoming exposed to a little bit of it ... to my own personal corner.

This is what I received yesterday from the FedEx lady, who was afraid to get out of her van because our ferocious Manchester Terrier, all 18 lbs. of him, was ready to eat her for a snack ...  You see all of those little pink sticky notes?  Those are pages that have questions for me to answer.  Rachel, my editor, did a great job laying out the text, the step-out photos are in b&w, but the beauty shots of the jewelry aren't in yet.  Next time, though, the beauty shots will be in place and I'll have another surreal experience!

I hear it is a long process Barbara, so I do get your drift. That is a good number of sticky notes isn't it? You will have all the answers whipped out in no time....I just know it!
