Last week I received the page proofs from the university press. Now the book has been formatted and looks like the final version. I have to check for errors. I am allowed to find up to 16 (based upon the size of the book) at no cost to me. I also have to create an index for the book. Some authors pay someone and other authors like to create their own. I decided to do my own after looking at other examples in biographies. I came up with categories this summer per instructions from the press and now I can add the page numbers from the proofs. Initially the press thought the proofs would be ready in November but they were done quite early. Very exciting to see the whole book manuscript as proofs! Below is the title page.
