Planning & Writing
Dave and Emily met for one hour per week for approximately twenty weeks. Most of these meetings were over the phone, and during this time, Dave simply shared stories, verses, ideas, concepts, and more. After every conversation, Emily wrote. She sent Dave a copy of the updated manuscript each week.
Drafts & Revisions
Once the manuscript was nearing an end, Emma Helling and Heather Dauphiny began work on the graphic design. As they were designing, Carey Phillips was editing. The book went through three different cover ideas and four variations in the eleven month process.
On October 24th, we ordered 1,000 books to be given out at the Camp Grace Banquet on November 5, 2017.
