The publication of the manuscript is moving along apace. Malachite Quills Publishing has been sending me e-mails full of documents I need to read and reply to and I have been sending them documents full of information and my various pipe dreams. :)
First came the actual contract. Filling that out and signing it required downloading a few new programs.
