Sorry I’m late bloggers/followers. I work at this cool little frozen yogurt shop and when I close shop it’s usually at 9. Takes me about 45 minutes then the drive home is like 30…if I don’t speed 🙂
So I texted my trusty editor during work to inform her of the page dilemma. Her reaction, priceless. I’m expecting her to freak out like I did, but she VERY CALM. I’d go as far to say nonchalant.
Her response went something like this.
Me: We have a problem. After formatting it and adjusting the trim size it came out to be over 700. Text me asap.
Her: So how is that a problem. The font should be smaller then.
I mean…DUH! Why hadn’t I thought of that?? Last night I almost had a heart attack or something. 700 pages, way too long. But I never thought about changing the font size AND THE STYLE! On top of her advice I got alot of advice on here. You all were helpful, thank you.
So here’s the update. After changing the font and style which was “Time New Roman-14” to Garamond-(Between 10-11). The pages knocked down to 456 with a word count of 115,176. So now I can breathe again. I’ll have format the paragraphs and footers again. But this looks great.
Now I’m excited. Hero’s Tale is an amazing Romance novel that I want to share with readers. I don’t want it turned away because readers see how thick the book is.
So now I need to format this doc, then do a book cover design. The sooner I get the cover then sooner I’ll be ready to start the whole process. My fingers are tingling from the excitement xD.
Well all, I have to get to work. I’ll be on here making comments and checking out blogs for a while too. Some of you have a tumblr and a facebook. As soon as I set the pages up, ADD ME. I can’t tell how great it is to finally know more writers, poets, musicians. You know, creative people. I’ll have links on my page soon 🙂
