MAKING EAR CANDY--The Print Proof is In!

There is nothing better than coming home from a long day at work and seeing that little cardboard package waiting for you by the door.

Yesterday, the print proof of my new book Making Ear Candy: The Audio Confectioner's Guide to Podcasting arrived, and it's pretty awesome.

This is the first time I've gone color with a print book, and I also have a lot of screenshots in the book, so I was really concerned about how the images would print. Luckily, all of them came out just fine, and there were only a couple of formatting issues I wanted to tweak before final release.

So, the updated files are with the printer now awaiting final validation, and then I'll make my first print order to ensure everything came out okay. After that, I'm good to go.

I'm thinking about doing a bit of a staggered release with the digital and print versions. At this point, I plan on releasing the digital version in the next two weeks (no later than August 13th), and the print version will likely be available by August 27th. Now, that could change is I get my print order back before the 13th. I just need to make sure the print version is set before I make it available for sale.

I am super excited right now. Even though it's just the print proof, holding the physical copy in my hands is a treat. I'm very proud of this book, and I can't wait to share it with all of you.
