History of the Woolfolk Family Their English Origins and Early Generations in America Volume I & II, by Col. Robert Shean Riley (Ret.), 2011. 8.5×11″, CD, PDF. ER3809-$100.00

Additionally, this month we are pleased to have published an American Military themed poetry volume: 

Passing Patriots Poetry of War and Peace, by Jennifer DiCamillo,  2011. 5.8×8.5″, 204 pages, perfect softbound fiction book, ISBN 978-1-936091-10-2. Poetry/Fiction: This modern collection of poetry speaks to all: the pacifist, the patriot, veterans everywhere, their families, everyone on the planet. Each page contains a quote about war, peace, or humanity— worth remembering, working uniquely with the original prose included below it. Each piece of poetry examines patriotism, love of country, and passion for life, honor and liberty. No matter who you are, or where you come from, you’ll find this collection hard-hitting with its gentle words of poetic license, tenderness in details, dramatic in its truths. It contains memories from the trenches, sniper perches, the beaches of Normandy. It speaks to the ghosts veterans live with. It begs the question, is war a sin or a mercy? A necessary evil? Or the answer to the world’s prayers for peace? One of the finest tributes to soldiers available, this well-balanced poetry collection boasts traditional form and free verse. It examines patriotism from more than one direction. The author loves being an American. She takes great pride in cheering for the armed forces of the U.S.A., the American flag, and the country for which they stand. Evidence fills every page, wringing horror and hope through each piece. But, she brings it to her readers as a catharsis. Renew your vows to be an American with conscience. Re-read the passages. Not only will you find yourself supporting the troops with more passion, but actively engaging yourself in praying for peace. AD2394-$25.00

March E-Zine V10 #3 – Computer Thursday, Mar 3 2011 

When creating computer files of individual elements that have not been place into a manuscript, create (or divide into) an individual file for each item. Be sure the file name describes the content (Miami1988SrClassPhoto, JohnHenry-FuneralCard, etc.). If you are working with different file formats (word processor file, graphic file, GEDCOM, etc.) and are not familiar with the differences between the formats when presented with a list of file names, you may wish to file the elements in folders that represent what they are (Photos, documents, stories, etc.). At this point, they are all jigsaw pieces to your manuscript puzzle. If you begin gluing pieces together, such as placing three remembrances about different subjects, it will be harder to search out the individual pieces for your perfect match.

March E-Zine V10 #3 – Design Thursday, Mar 3 2011 

starting out
///////////////////////////////

Begin by being comfortable: It is recommended that a manuscript preparation individual learn as much as they can about the chosen method of manuscript preparation. Don’t handicap yourself from the start by knowing just enough to get by. Even if your computer system is all you have available, so the choices seem to have been made for you, it’s important to feel comfortable with your system. The first hurdle for a non-computer user author is to feel comfortable turning on (booting up) the system. From there, take a class, utilize online help and forums, and build your list of friends you can call for help, or even just check out a few “Dummies” books at the library to begin. It may surprise the writer how much being familiar with their tools actually strengthens their finished book.

March E-Zine V10 #3 – Define Thursday, Mar 3 2011 

*Tail: The bottom edge of a leaf, board, or bound volume; that is, the surface on which a volume rests when shelved upright.

Milling: The spines of books and periodicals can be cut away on a milling machine to prepare them for oversewing. A machine clamps the text block, spine down, and moves it over rotating blades, cutting away (grinding) approximately 1/8 inch of the binding margin, allowing for a clean edge to bind. For rebinding, this removes old adhesive, thread, and/or folds of signatures. After milling, all text blocks are comprised of loose leaves.

While differences in word usage may occur, hopefully these listings will give an idea, to the new author, of what some general terms mean. Terms marked with an asterisk (*) are not generally used in our office.  All other terms are defined as used in our business plant and offices.
