I know we’ve had this discussion before, oh ye document mavens, but Uncle Joel’s memory for things that perplex him is…imperfect.
I have a first draft for my current book, You Never Completely Lose. But things have changed so very much since ze old days of ‘send it to Lulu and let the world ignore it,’ and I’d really like to do this self-publishing thing right this time.
One big problem is that the doc file is 20 megs big – there are quite a few photographs. Exporting to .pdf gives me something just a bit over 2 meg, which might at least be uploadable to some places. But I can’t simply send the doc file elsewhere for formatting without reference to a thumb drive and UPS.
ETA: If anybody out there is interested in putting on their editor hat, now would be a good time to wave your hand.
