We???re just about to start week 2 of the Book Publishing Immersion Program at SFU. I finally had a little free time yesterday, which I spent outside by the water recharging (it was so very necessary).
It???s kind of hard to convey how intense this is. We worked until midnight a few nights last week, running on coffee and adrenaline. There were a couple nights when I was coming up with new books and writing TI???s for them at 10 pm, barely able to form a coherent sentence. Friday night was the worst; we were all exhausted, and had some drama in our group (someone quit) so we threw up our hands and went to the pub. It was exactly what the doctor ordered. Saturday we got it together, and we finally have a list we???re really proud of. It???s crazy, these books become so real in our minds???I???m going to be sad when I don???t see them in bookstores.
This week we make covers (can???t wait!) and we end with sales conference. I have some fun ideas for sales conference, and I think it will be a blast.
Now, back to work! Will try to update again in a few days.
