Striving for consistancy

Focusing on getting Terra Incognito revised and ready to go to my editor. It’s amazing how a series of columns over eighteen months developed (and changed) over time. Part of what I’m trying to do is catch the small inconsistencies between columns. Say in one column I did a numbered list with dashes to separate the name from the explanation and in the next I used a colon. So, now, I get to decide which way is right and then make sure every column matches up.

It’s little things like that which will drive a reader of a book crazy, but with the month between articles, no one noticed (or if they did, they never called me on it). So, while I thought this was nearly ready to go, I’m discovering I may have been a bit optimistic. *sigh*

However, something I’m very optimistic on is the cover. No, you can’t see it yet, but I have contracted out a very talented artist to do the cover for me. His name is Shane Braithwaite and you can see examples of his art at

So, slowly and steadily the book is coming together. I can’t wait to get the opportunity to share it with you sometime later this year.  And now back to work.
