First book proof

Day 304: ProofThe proof copy of Crescat Graffiti, Vita Excolatur: Confessions of the University of Chicago came in the mail yesterday. On the whole, I’m really pleased with it. There’s a few changes that I need to make in the text (spelling “acknowledgments” consistently, fixing page references that changed after I wrote the text, adding a few more explanatory notes, aligning my headers consistently) but nothing major.

<Math genius, illegiblyIn the “Time” section, though, a couple of the photographs fell victim to the shadows the A-level lights cast on the whiteboards, so I’m replacing a spread there with one in the “Motivation” section. Sadly, among the victims is one of my favorite pieces of graffiti– a timeline for becoming a math genius in 13 hours.

At the moment, I’m mostly done with the revisions, and figure I’ll order the new proof before the end of the weekend. At that rate, I’ll get the revised proof by the end of next week. If everything looks good I’ll place a bulk order (for selling signed copies through this site) and get it submitted to Amazon. On that timetable, I figure it’ll be published sometime around the week of November 16th.
