Pictures done, working on layout
All the illustrations for the novel are complete, thanks to Marlon Teunissen. I'm currently working on the layout. Initially I thought Google Docs would be able to handle it, but it only supports 8.5x5.5, and even though this is a valid size, it also has issues with even and odd pages, starting page numbering on a later page, and other formatting related issues. I therefore switched to Microsoft Word Starter Edition 2010, and even though I had to get used to it, I was able to make three different versions with three different font sizes (12, 11 and 10). I think the 10 point works the best, and it still ends up to be over 200 pages long. I'm currently struggling with the cover, but hopefully this will work out too. Marlon has been kind enough to place some initial text on it to show how it could look.
