So you have your manuscript prepped with each functional unit saved as a separate file. The next step is designing the book. As a reminder, the tutorial will be written with Adobe’s InDesign in mind (ID4 & ID5 export reasonably clean files to .epub). We are curious to know if the steps will work equally well with QuarkXPress, so please be sure to comment if that’s the program you use.
Just a couple quick announcements:
1. Jessie Carty’s Paper House was nominated for a SIBA Award by Barnhills (a Southern bookseller).
2. Folded’s application to publish iBooks was accepted, so be looking for enhanced versions of our e-books by the end of spring.
2011 has already started off with a bang. We drew the name of our winner for the “win our 2011 list” promotion. Looks like we’ll be making regular shipments to Australia this year. Congratulations to Gayle in Victoria! She’ll be receiving at least six green edition chapbooks plus THE YEAR OF THE MONKEY by Smitha Murthy and Dorothee Lang (our first travel narrative) and FREIGHT by Mel Bosworth (our first novel). Looks like we’ll know the local Postmaster on a first name basis very soon:-)
