The long-awaited book by Ken Spooner, The Knapps Lived Here, is heading to press in the days ahead. To celebrate, Elm & McKinley is launching this new blog, and we’re hoping you’ll follow along as we go through the final phases of production together. Making a book is a lot of work for authors and publishers, and through the ten years that Ken has worked on his manuscript, he’s kept us all abreast of each development from his own website. Today, I’d like to invite everyone to join us as we live-blog the final steps in publishing this book for all of you. When you see comments enabled on posts, and feel free to contribute to the conversation.
To bring you all up to speed, today we’re unveiling all of this because the book has made it through several rounds of back-and-fourths with its design, typesetting, and initial parlay into the distribution channels. Once we get through jumping every hoop, you’ll find the book available on the Lulu MarketPlace, or via Amazon as an eBook or regular paperback, or from your local book shop. In the mean time, stay tuned as we walk through the final steps of The Knapps Lived Here together.
