It has been another productive week on the book. I should have the initial cover ideas by the end of today. And over the weekend the first round of editing should be finished. So, I should be able to start in on my second round of editing then. I am very excited to see all the hard work going into the book and anxious to see the final outcome.
This week I have been working on revamping my web site. With a project like this, I have thousands more pictures than I can use. For this book alone, I took over 40,000 photographs. And of those only about 3,800 made the first cut. And for the book, I selected just about 300. So for all the rest that made the first cut, I am organizing them into galleries and putting the up on my web site. It is a slow process and on a good day I can get three done, but soon they will all be there.
Next week, I am focusing on the business side of publishing a book. I have a lot of details to figure out and finish, like setting up my publishing company as an LLC and getting the tax stuff figured out. Even though I know it will be boring, it is all the stuff I must get done to be a real company.
