The last two weeks have been focused on some of the nitty gritty parts of publishing. We have been gathering information on grants and awards for the book. These come a little later on in the process, but it never hurts to plan ahead.
What we have been working towards is the first deadline of our author. Now, unlike a majority of books that get published, this project was thought up at Ooligan and has been passed off to Lynn Darroch to mold into his own. This week, Lynn will be giving the team the first look at what the book might be. The jazz team and the editing department will be reviewing the draft and working with Lynn to narrow the focus of the research.
Next time I will go into more details about this process.
