Page proofs in my hands

It didn’t take long at all for me to get page proofs sent to me after returning the manuscript back to The History Press. I’ve now got in my grubby little hands the book as it will appear in print. This is extremely groovy (a 1960s/1970s term that needs to seriously make a comeback).

In part, here is the letter I received from the publisher today:

11 May 2012

Dear Paul,

Attached are the page proofs for Murder in Wauwatosa: The Mysterious Death of Buddy Schumacher. We are very near the completion of the production stage and are looking forward to sending this title to print!

Please read this e-mail thoroughly before beginning your review of the text, as it contains information and instructions on how to submit corrections back to us.

As there should only be very minor corrections, you should be able to return the corrected proofs to us quite quickly, within the five days of your contract, or by May 15, 2012.

Our sales and marketing team will be in touch with you next with estimated publication dates as they prepare promotional material for the release of the book.
