Chugging Along: Ghost Star Update #3

I submitted my publish-ready manuscript to Kindle Press yesterday. This draft was based on the excellent notes I got from my KP editor. I also had "David," the Microsoft Word robot voice, read Ghost Star back to me one more time after I had done the changes. I'm always amazed at how many errors he helps me catch. If you're not using TTS (Text to Speech) as a proofing tool, I highly recommend that you do so.

I got a note back from KP this morning. My author revised draft has "passed the final stages of review." Because of the quick turnaround, I'm guessing their approval is based on some sort of auto-scan.

The rest of the note goes on to say:
"Currently, the Kindle Press production team is working on converting your Word doc into a MOBI e-book file for publication on all Kindle devices. We’ll let you know when this stage is complete and we establish a detail page for your title. This process typically takes around 1-2 weeks."
Super cool! That's it for now. More to come.
