Getting there.

I kind of finished the book yesterday, and started inputting my own proofs that I’d done on hardcopy. A group of wonderful people have agreed to read the manuscript and critique. I’m not going to make major changes, but I’m sure there are a lot of errors.

Unfortunately, my contact at the Washington State Crime Lab no longer works there, so I don’t have that resource.

My readers are:

  • Alinda O’Malley, compulsive proofreader
  • Joanna Rosado, Rainie Baile, Janine Poul and Cherie Pitillo, from my writing group
  • Dan L Brown, Cornell University botanist
  • Richard Pauli, originator of the phototoxic idea for the organic killing machine, and researcher
  • Don Batchelor, author
  • Deb Ullrich, book person
  • Hoping for Molly Mignon, archaeologist
  • James Butler, who always sees stuff I don’t
  • Lorna Gail Dallin, spiritual advisor
  • Josh Gatcke is doing the cover (and reading the book).

I hope to pull this all together in a week and pouf! Up it will go on amazon e-books. I hope.

This week I’ll apply for a copyright. By tomorrow, I’ll be making copies to pass out. This is getting serious.

I have two consultants left to see: Lic. Vanessa Hernandez, criminal defense lawyer in Merida, and Commander Serpico (sic) of the state police. I want to check on the police procedures I’ve written, because they’re from my experience in the American system and I don’t know things like whether or not they need search warrants here, how long they can hold someone without charging them, etc.
