All this week, I've been contacting the people quoted in my book to verify facts and get formal permission. It's just one step in a process that will apparently result in galleys by September (a galley is basically a bound manuscript that goes out to reviewers and blurb-ers, even though it hasn't been copy edited or finished with notes or anything). Every step closer to publication--a cover design, another revision--fills me with trepidation. And excitement.
