October was a busy month: copy-editing was completed and the book design finalised, including the cover. The book has been listed on the website of Bloomsbury Publishing (read more) and can be found on the websites of most major book sellers for preorder, including Amazon and Waterstones.
There now remains about one month until the book is sent to the printers. During November the manuscript will be checked by a professional proofreader and separately, the index prepared by a specialist indexer. Fourteen pages have been planned for the index of The New Sylva to allow for a comprehensive section to guide readers. We hope to return to this subject in more detail in a future post.
The authors will be undertaking a final read through and be ready to respond to any queries raised by the editorial team.
