Ok, so I thought once I got the images back for The Rabbit Who Wished He Could Fly, the formatting would just, well, fly by. Nope, it's taking longer than I thought. Then it took a while to get the page numbers set. I was fighting and fighting with Photoshop to get them on the pages in the same spots. Then, I learned how to make my own actions! And? I made an action for the left and the right side of the page! Woohoo!
Now, I have a few adjustments to make to the location of the words on the illustrations and also to the 'This Book Belongs To' page. After that, I have to finish all the info for the ISBN numbers (yes, I bought my own). Then, into a format that CreateSpace accepts (word for me). Word keeps shutting down on me, too. It's a 399.6MB sized monstrosity of a file! I also need to get the cover done, too! Oh, and a couple minor adjustments to the title page :)
But, I'm getting there and I'm both learning from and enjoying the process.
Soon, my minions, soon...
I think, once it's done, I may make a long post, or even a separate page, describing the entire process from beginning to end for you all (and me) to use as a reference point.
Happy Writing (and reading!!)
