The Software Is There

. . .  if you have the will to use it. Having spent a day, less than two weeks before publication, completely changing how the software deals with the typography of A Brief History Of Lies but aiming for same finished result, pressure of time and getting it right coalesce. This is the point where determination takes over from the time available to finish the book.

Not only would these changes make the book a more effective piece of changeable data, it will also eradicate small errors one can miss even with repeated edits. But it means a whole new version and everything to be redone.

That said it is the way to learn and it will make all the other books to be published in the next two years better and it is essential to get the first book one is publishing right because it will be a mark of the printed-standard, those invisible decisions on the ‘look’ and ‘style’  that readers only notice when they are not there, are vital.

But Oh! the work!
