Publishing an ebook -- Day Three

Now we've nailed a few things -- the cover is done -- the writing of the book is almost finished-- still have to write up a description, but what's really taking time today is proofreading.

Another colleague of mine is proofreading my quick biz book idea of 12 pages and I'm proofreading her volume of short stories which is about 45 pages. I'm the loser in that deal, I suppose. Her writing is very funny and good to read, so I find I'm slipping into just plain reading, instead of red pencil aggressive proofing and copyediting.

We should be done by tonight. Her stuff is really funny. She has a long conversation with her college roommates about whether they would prefer having their hands or feet chopped off first, related to something she was reading about attending medical school and doing autopsies. I guess it's hard to imagine that being a funny subject, but with her as the writer, it is.
