I've decided to write a short blog-type post every week here on this forum. These posts are exclusive to this forum, and they will primarily be about the writing of the book.

I'm near the finish of the copy editing phase of the manuscript. The copy editor, Sharon Wilkey, has been carefully changing the voice (we to you) and touching up many typos and small mistakes.

She has found through careful reading some unclear areas, as well as some figures that need to be renumbered. Fresh eyes help here! It's hard for my own eyes to spot issues. The screen shot below shows a typical set of changes.


The above is from Chapter 15. Sometime this weekend, I'll submit the 19th chapter back to her. There's one more chapter after that! The finish line is very close.

Thank You for reading!
