italicsany other visual elements in the text were added during paging. Of course, with the search field in Word, it was easy to go back and forth to update or correct things as I progressed or as I made new entries that necessitated cross references with ones I had already typed up. (Or to double-check things I had forgotten, if I had typed them a year or two previously!) MMW: Your endeavor is self-published. Do you have any experience with publishing or was this your first try at it? HORNE: I was a production editor at Jossey-Bass in San Francisco, a once- small business books publisher that is now owned by John Wiley and Sons out of New Jersey. I was there for eight years, and have spent ten years since then working for myself as a freelance production editor and copyeditor, mostly for Jossey-Bass and for Stanford University Press. The produc- tion editor role is different between book publishing and magazine or comic publish- ing, and it can even be different from pub- lisher to publisher, but in my case, my job was to take a finished manuscript that had been signed by the editorial depart- ment and turn it into a book. This meant guiding it through copyediting, author re- view, design, paging, proofreading, and in- dexing, right up until it was ready to go to the printer. Our department head once de- scribed that position as being the hub of the wheelwe PEs worked directly with the authors; hired the freelance editors, artists, and pagers and oversaw their work; coordinated with the design and manufac- turing departments; and were responsible for the overall quality, budget, and sched- ule of each book. When I first began as an assistant, I even did (what we considered) grunt work such as reviewing book con- tracts and registering copyrights with the Library of Congress. As you can see, this was perfect background for self-publishing, because I had my hands in every aspect of the process.
