The MS is finished

The manuscript of my book is finished--I wrote the last few words last night. I'll be emailing it to the publisher and the typesetters later today.

Once the publishers have typeset the manuscript, they'll send back to me what are called "proofs"--copies of the actual pages of the book. I'm supposed to go through all the proofs and correct any errors, update page number references, etc. Then it all goes back to the publisher, and then--FINALLY--it gets published and distributed.

And SOMEDAY I'll actually get a few dollars in royalties for the darn thing. But that's really not the point in academic publishing, I guess.

Anyway: it's done. So there.
