Before I can order the final proof, Doug is hard at work finishing the formatting for the cover. But isn't the cover already finished you ask? That's a very good question and I'm glad you asked it. You see, formatting for a finished book cover is a little trickier than it looks. You have to produce a single image that includes back cover, spine, and front cover, and which spills just slightly beyond the official size, what's called "bleed". You have to measure very precisely to account for the exact number of pages or it will all print askew.
Meanwhile, I have been hard at work mimicking the superior skills of a typesetter. What's a typesetter, you also ask?
