Preparing RED to be READ 3

Doing edit checks on the RED manuscript in CreateSpace this morning. The automatic interior check in CreateSpace found issue with the size of my images (requires at least 300 dpi for quality printing). I thought I had fixed the problem with Paint Shop Pro, but alas it indicates they are still not right. I’m going to have a proof copy printed to see how low quality the images actually appear in print. I wasn’t going for HD, so they may turn out okay.

I was mostly looking at the visual impact in the manuscript: were the paragraphs aligned correctly, did the images track well with the text, any glaring setup issues. I had to make a couple of corrections to one or two pages where the paragraphs/subtitles were not on the right page, but those were quick fixes and the file uploaded again. Just took a few minutes.

Cover design and back cover text are complete, so I should have a printed proof by this time next week.

RED: Revelation

The final poem.

RED: Revelation

The Most Selfless
desires a help
meet for Him;

so from Spirit lips
a whispered
invitation.

The beautiful accuser,
cartoonishly
depicted in red,

hisses
false alarm
to defy.

Conflicted loyalty
rends the veil
of heaven.

The line is drawn
in the soil
of man.

Love and war
collide
at the cross,

where it is finished
before
it began.
