Guardian has been sent to the printers.
I just finished uploading Guardian to Lightning Source today. I spent all of Monday tweaking the pages, headers, styles to fit the proper format. Even adjusting the lines per page. Today, I sat back down and went over it all again to make sure I hadn't missed anything. I have learned a lot about typesetting after launching Requiem.
When I went through the same process with Requiem, I had missed a few things and it cost me around $100 and delayed things by an additional week. Lesson has been learned so hopefully when I get the proof copy of Guardian next week, it will be ready for approval and distribution.
On a side note, I would like to thank everyone who went to my Facebook page and hit the like button. I was able to secure a unique Facebook URL. www.facebook.com/sbjonespublishing
I can use this new URL on promotional items and the like, and it makes it easier to remember and post.
I am going to keep today's blog short. If anyone has any questions about Lightning Source or the process of uploading your title to them. Ask in the comments section. Also I have a bunch of new screen captures of the conversion process to make your word doc kindle and nook ready. I think I will post that guide in a few days, or next week so look forward to that.
