It may be my training in history, or my love for a well-written obituary, but when I get deep into writing a book I start thinking about how close to a finished product the book would be if I got hit by a truck today.
“Is this pretty much in shape so readers will have a good idea of what I was trying to do?”
“Could an editor clean up what remains? What do I want to change?”
This week, those morbid questions are put to rest on Aluminum Upcycled. I have corrected the proofs and approved the index. Images are in place, as is the cover. Whatever trucks have in store, this book is as I intended it. Thanks to all at Johns Hopkins University Press as they prepare Aluminum Upcycled for 2017 publication.
