January 2013 E-Zine (V12#1): Genealogy Thursday, Jan 17 2013 

Some may feel this is logical, but our staff is surprised how many people don’t do this: Be sure that you have at least one online presence dedicated to your book. This can be a traditional traditional web site, dedicated blog, or social networking account (profile, page, group, etc.). If you have more than one static presence, it is good to interconnect them.

Writer’s Lingo:
Crop marks: lines indicating what part of the photograph to print. These are commonly placed directly on the face of the photograph with grease pencil (which will easily rub off later). Our company charges extra if many photos are submitted this way.
*Dead copy: Any previous drafts or copies that have been discarded once proof read and any changes have been completed. All drafts should be dated (easiest), marked or coded so the writer can be sure of working on the “current” and be able to see their progress in the older ones.
Terms marked with an asterisk (*) are not generally used in our office.
