The Final Push
First, as you can see, we’ve got ourselves a new cover. Now here’s what’s going on with the book.
Indexing has turned out to take a lot longer than we had expected; we’re planning on getting that finished today. The last time we indexed a book, it was 235 pages and didn’t have anywhere near the number of references that the Gilmore book does. (Part of that is because we’re indexing a lot of the lines/phrases that Gilmore Girls is known for so that you can locate which episodes they’re in, e.g., “Oy with the poodles, already.”)
While I’m doing the indexing, Pamela’s going to finish up the back cover, do some test prints, and make sure the images throughout the book are ready for press. Watch this blog, as we’re hoping to have some sample pages up here before long.
All our fact-checking inquiries have been answered as of yesterday, so we’re no longer waiting for those. On Monday, I am very hopeful that we’ll be able to report that this puppy has finally gone off to the publisher! (Hey, no placing of bets. I saw that, gang.)
