Book deadline dead ahead

Going down the home stretch with eight days to go. I'm getting there and might make it yet. Maybe a few things will be missing, but on the whole, it's in pretty good shape. Just have to get all my manuscript changes into six more chapters and finish some small pieces of art, take a few studio photographs and harass some artists for info they still haven't sent me. I have to duplicate everything, make printouts of the manuscript.... Suddenly I'm very tired again.

I'm not sure what's going on. When I convert my tiff images to CMYK per the production department's instructions, they don't display properly in some of my desktop viewers. They look fine in both of my Photoshop programs. I may have to go back and re-do all the digital images I had already done. Believe it or not, I don't mind that if it can make the book better. I'll still be sweating it until the designer approves the art. And now, nose to the grindstone.....

I can't imagine all the work that goes into producing a book. A friend of mine Janie Freeman has just had her book published at Northlight and it is beautiful..but all those deadlines!
