The Journey: Liz

It started with Sophie’s blog, Pop Goes the Library.

Next came the book proposal.

Then there was the writing. I’m old school; my original drafts all had to be handwritten. It’s how I think best.

And then transcribed into the computer, saved, and shared with Sophie.

And then revisions flew back and forth, and true to form, I needed to print out to revise. Using red ink, of course.

And finally, after we had both written and rewritten and revised each chapter, off it went to the publisher, looking like this. (Plus, also, an electronic format.)

And then, somehow, it became a real live book….which we will unveil as soon as we have a copy in our hands!
