Just mentioning that I’ve got the galley that is the last time I can make any changes to the book. After this, it’s a gold master!
In a little over three months, GeekDad: Awesomely Geeky Projects for Dads and Kids to Share will hit the shelves (both real and virtual), and the publishing process continues at a frenzy. Last night, I received the first galley – basically a laser-printed copy of the book with the final formatting. I have a week to make any last-minute tweaks or edits, so I’m spending all my free moments reading the thing one more time. I have to say I enjoyed going through the introduction section, which was mostly written nearly 16 months ago. The prose feels fun and breezy, and hopefully very readable. I get more excited every day!
And the final formatting looks great! You’ll notice a row of little robots at the top of the website here – those come from the final book formatting, as does the use of my new favorite font, Armada Light. More to come as the day gets closer!
We’re knocking down a couple walls, adding some skylights, and hopefully getting this thing ready for the launch of the book, which is only THREE MONTHS AWAY! Hope you like it.
