Okay all joking aside I figured I’d talk a bit about the publishing end of things now. InDesign is a great tool but it also requires learning and honestly now I’m pretty impressed that Chris sort of figured it out on his own. I may know the terminology that goes with it (sorta), and I know shortcuts and other things but I still feel like he’ll be the expert and the go-to guy for any issues we have.
Other than that, learning about it has been a lot of fun. I always thought laying out books and magazines were a kind of magic that I’d never be able to understand. Somehow, an intelligent force made the slick pages of a magazine or the weighty mass of a book. A force far more intelligent than me.
Anyways, while I knew about master pages, Chris showed me how to take the document out of word and put it into chapters for a print and ebook.
I’m just so tickled and pleased with my new knowledge!
I’m in no way an expert, but this is something I was convinced I’d never learn, and yet… the first version of the new book is ready to go. Granted Chris is in the middle of editing it. So after that it goes to our copyeditor, and then it comes back to us, and finally Lucius, Clyde, and Brigid will then have to sit on the computer or laptop to signify their approval or warm their butts, I’m never sure on that.
