So what's beginning today? My review of the audio files of Summer's Song - yes, that's right, it will be releasing in audio book format in early September, and the files arrived in my inbox yesterday ready to proof. Basically, this involves listening carefully to each chapter with the book in hand, and noting any errors and the time at which they occur. Then I send my notes back to the editor, who has the narrator do retakes. I have to say, there is something so cool about hearing your words read out loud by someone else. Though the listening process is a little tedious, I'm looking forward to it :)
Want to know more about the whole audio book process? I'm blogging about it in a 3-part series this summer/fall over at Savvy Authors. I'll let you know when those posts are up.
And what's ending? This school year, since I'm a high school teacher in my day-time, real-world job. Yesterday was the last day with students, which is always bittersweet. Lots of food, games, goodbyes, yearbook signings, gift giving, and general reflection on the year. How is it possible that each seems to go faster than the last?
