What are First Pass Pages?
This weekend I received my first pass pages on With A Name Like Love.
If you're like me, you may not have a clue what first pass pages are. Thanks to my discussions with members of both the Class of 2k11 and the Elevensies, I was able to know a bit about them before they came my way.
What are they?
Your formatted book! Up to this point, we've been working off a manuscript. You know, 8x11 regular typed pages.
Now I get to see how it will be formatted...what font they have chosen, how the chapters will be marked.
It's way cool!
It's also my last chance to make any changes and search out any errors. From here, it's almost to print...eek!
so I wanted to share some pics.
the title page above and also a chapter heading. I very much like the slightly modern touch to the script they've chosen on this historical piece. I think it gives the work a fresh look that I hope will appeal to readers.
Questions: have you heard of the term first pass pages...why do they call them that when really it is your LAST pass? Any ideas out there?
