Our tech reviewer just finished the last chapter, so now the chapters are off to the formatter and then the copy editor. It's amazing how involved the commercial publishing process is. Having only written for magazines and online publishers before, this is a whole new ball o' wax for me. That's not a bad thing, but it does give me a new appreciation for just how many people contribute to those books you see on the shelves of the book store. There may be one or two names on the cover, but likely at least eight people (and possibly many more) were actively involved in shaping the content of the book, not to mention the layout, production, printing and all the other tasks, which likely drives the number up into the dozens.
