Almost there...

>>  11.8.12






I can't say "finally" yet... but it's almost there! :)
It was hard to hide my excitement when I passed the book's working file to the printer. And just yesterday before I went back home from work, they gave me the color-proof for me to do the last proof-reading before setting out to print. (Their office is within the same block as my office).

And so I spent almost more than half a day, re-read everything like almost 10 more times, and mark few mistakes that I made. It's kind of frustrating although I know it bounds to happen. But me and my habit; yeah... I blame myself quite a lot for these sort of things.


look at the post-it marks!


It seems I'm done proof-reading for now. I've edited the working files again and wait until Monday to pass them to the printer. But again, maybe tomorrow I will do another proof-reading. XD

On the personal side, today is the first weekend that I can sleep until noon (no work and my book is done). But I still wake up so early! =.=; I guess the anxiety is still haunting me...

And this is the mess that I still have to clean-up...




Another thing is that I have bought a domain name! Yay!
From now on, you can visit me at www.asukasakumo.com
The old address will automatically redirect you to my new address.


I will also have more exciting things to show, but for now you will have to wait. ;)
I also have a new shop at Zibbet, but am thinking of doing a direct online shop instead. I will let you know again when I have decided on things. I can't do many things at once since my biggest worry is still about publishing the book.

Shall I open a pre-order for the book? Let me know what you think :)

Oh i didn't realise all the posts are already on your new site =) congrats for getting so many things done!

Yups, pre-order would be good. You could also have a e-book for people to download =) but for me, i definitely prefer the hard copy one! Look forward to your book launch!!

I would love a pre-order - I'm overseas but I wouldn't mind paying the intl shipping cost for the book!

A book? You must be so tickled and proud. :)

Hi Christine, yes I am keeping a copy for you. I will update you again soon.

Janet, I can keep a copy for you as well; I don't dare to open up a listing yet as I don't know how much the shipping will be. I've tried using the website's shipping calculator... but I'm hoping that the are wrong (it stated SGD$36 for UK or US!). I will bring the actual book to the post office to calculate the real shipping :)

Hi Dale :)
Haha, right now I am still more worried rather than anything else... But keep your fingers cross for me so that everything can go well! :)

Based off of your work, I really want a copy of your book =) Hopefully the shipping won't be $36, but this can be a gift to myself so I can splurge a bit more than I normally do =D
