This book is my baby. It was my first book, and for some unfathomable reason, my publisher and I decided that my team would package this book. We did everything–all writing, photography, design & layout, copy editing, proof reading, and photo-retouching. I had help with content editing from my fantastic editor, Billie Brownell, without whom I would never have finished ANY of my books. At the end, we handed them print-ready files. Talk about trial by fire!
Much of what I learned producing this book has allowed me to help others package their books. I wouldn’t trade the blood, sweat, and tears for anything. I’m more proud of this book than probably anything else I’ve ever done.
