Writing a new book is a complex multi-step process, only part of which is done by the actual author. There are three basic steps where the author has stuff do to. The first two are the writing of the first draft and then reviewing the copy which has been tech edited to make revisions based on the notes from the tech editor.
This part of the process is now done for The Basics of Digital Privacy
Now a bunch of magic happens and the word docs get converted into some PDFs which are basically what the actual book will be printed from. I’ll get those back in probably a few weeks so review them to make sure that nothing got screwed up, that the images are correct, etc.
Then a few more weeks of magic and a physical book appears on my doorstep.
Hopefully the magic elves over at the publisher will get their part done for a holiday release as scheduled.
