Proof Reading

The Mark Family Story is in my hands, the proof copy, that is. A beautiful cover and 435 pages to check for format, spelling, grammar, accuracy and readability. Dozens of photos to check for correct captions. I can see that some of them will need to be adjusted. They are too dark or too light to be easily viewed as black and white photos. My daughter and Adobe Photoshop will improve those photos. Thanks Alyssa!

This is my last chance to make any adjustments to this project which I have been working on for years. I am excited about the look of the book and even more excited about how it will look when it is finally complete.

Be sure to watch my blog to discover when the book is done!

I can't imagine what it would be like to write a book. A blog is hard enough! Congratulations on your soon to be published book.
