As I predicted, I finished proofreading and revising The Francesians by the end of the month. Now I get into the mechanical processes of bringing it into a publishable state. That means things like a title page, a table of contents and back matter. Then we come to the conversions to PDF and ePub so people can read them in the readers of their choice. PDF is pretty straightforward since LibreOffice can export directly to that format, and I don’t feel obliged to provide a “cover” for it. All I have to do is make sure it looks good and is formatted correctly. The ePub is a little trickier. There are many little details in the process that have to be just so to get the desired result. It’s finicky but we’re still on track to have it published before the end of summer, and that will be that for the Green Comet trilogy.
