Second deadline has past

We received 29 proposals from 26 different author(s).  We reviewed all submissions, made comments where we thought the focus of the chapter should be, recorded keywords and then responded to the contributors.

The meeting took approximately 3.5 hours.  I was totally impressed by what we were able to accomplish.  This is due largely in part to the fact that I have found someone to work with that has a similar work ethic to mine.  Doesn't hurt that we also really like each other!

Information from Chandos has been forwarded to the contributors including a sample chapter, abstract and keyword guideline and a reference style document, as well as, permissions information.  Each contributor will receive a contract directly from Chandos publishing.

My advice at this point in the process:
  • pick someone that you work well with, if you are thinking of co-authoring or co-editing a book
  • stay organized 
    • we have many spreadsheets on the go!
  • take a deep breath, because you will have a lot of work ahead of you!
