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!
