Happy New Year! During December, I finished checking and formatting the index to volume II of my Pettus book. I set up a shared folder with my publisher, Otter Bay Books, Inc., via Dropbox.com that has all of my volume II files in it. I also made a CD and had two copies printed by FedEx, one for me to proofread and the other for the publisher to review. Since then, I have been mainly proofreading, though I have already made a few corrections. Once I complete the review, I will get a final estimate of the publication cost and send out a notice to prospective customers with price and availability. I expect the book to be ready in late spring of 2013. It is about the same size and volume I, so the price of volume II should be about the same as that of volume I. I now have about 27 copies of volume I remaining should anyone be interested in purchasing a copy or copies.
