Recently I mentioned some news about my latest book project, where I’d gotten an email from my publisher explaining they were re-packaging the book I’d spent the last year working on. I also mentioned the title has been changed from California; Yesterday and Today to being re-titled as Greetings from California: Legends, Landmarks & Lore of the Golden State.

One of the goals that was expressed was that they wanted to book to be “less academic” and “more fun.” My internal response was, “Yeah, good luck with that.”

So began the waiting game to see what the publisher had in mind. I didn’t have to wait too long.

Late last week I received two sample page mock-ups for the internal design of the book. My first thought was, “Wow!” I was thrilled. I think the publisher has hit it out of the proverbial park. In my (unbiased) opinion, they achieved their goal. They maintained the heart and spirit of the book, and most importantly, it looks “fun.”

This week I am working through the edited manuscript. I can’t wait to see how the full book turns out. I’m really excited.

Now if they can just do something about the cover mock-up…. :)
