Smile I do too.

Have an afghan, two baby blankets, a rug, and soon as I get a wash cloth for a Christmas present planned and in progress, smile.

Smile,

As a submitter with almost 1200 books on the site, I readily admit that the kids books get done sooner, they are well, shorter, and not so complicated and well easy to edit and proof, and well did I mention shorter, smile.

But that doesn't mean that the adult books don't get done, smile.

I like to edit and get ready seven or eight or even nine books at once, so when a part gets difficult I can move onto a different part until I am ready to go back and attack it, smile.

Am working on right now, in no particular order, and is not all on this Braillenote

Speaking for Spot: Being Your Dog's Advocate
Eastern Great Lakes Lighthouses
Great Lakes Shipwrecks and Survivals
Complete Idiot's Guide to the Labrador Retriever
Complete idiot's Guide to Sewing
The Purls of Lutra
The Lion's Share
Do Pharmacists Sell Farms?


And along with those some kids books thrown into to ease up on the challenges. Each of those above books poses formatting challenges. They will get done, eventually, smile. Need time. Besides, when I was laid up with the broken ankle had lots of time for reading and editing, am now back to work full time.

Also those are not all the books I am working on, I might put one of those down for a while work on another and then go back to it. Smile. I do the same with knitting, have at the moment three projects going and one in the planning stage, and one when I get the right loom to start.

It depends on what the scanners and proofers want. If they are in a mood for children' 's books, that's what we get. The mix of books coming in is like weather in Michigan: wait five minutes.

I've noticed a strong emphasis on children's books as well. This is wonderful, so long as it isn't at the expense of books for us adults, too.

I am just wondering about bookshare policy of submitted books. Taking a look at the cue, it looks like children's books which is okay but what about books that are just for pleasure.
