A big day!

The proof copy arrived today and it looks wonderful! Bill, with a fresh pair of eyes, will proofread it soon.

There’ll be a few tweaks and corrections, needless to say, but then I’ll resubmit and we should be good to go.

Waiting for the Proof Copy . . .

I’ve gotten word that it meets the “technical requirements” of CreateSpace. So I’ve ordered a copy to proof. Should be here in less than a week!

Here is the bound copy that I have had for over fifty years, given to me by my grandmother. As it turned out, there were seven more volumes that I was able to borrow from a cousin and transcribe.

The Cover of the Book-to-Be

After working for years to complete the transcription, footnoting, introduction, historical notes, and most complicated of all, formatting, I’ve submitted The Diary of a Southern Lady to CreateSpace for publication. If it meets their technical requirements, the next step will be to order a draft copy to proof. I’m holding my breath!
