TIny homes progressRick has been working over a month now on the 1,000 images in the book, using Photoshop to enhance (and sometimes rescue) the photos. He's just about finished. As of a few days ago, we finished layout of the last pages. Next we've got a round of corrections, then proofreading, then printing out the entire book full size on Epson proofing paper.

For the last week I've been fooling around with a title page showing people in the book. Here's the latest version, just finished this morning. Scissors and removable scotch tape at this stage.

We're working on a bunch of ideas for the cover. Nothing solid yet. Subtitle: Wheels & Water.

Target date is books in stores by May.

We've had orders for 2100 copies of Tiny Homes this month, and the month isn't even over. Saving our bacon.
