Episode 47: Why It’s Called A Deadline

December 3, 2012

The end of September came and, too, our deadline for releasing our manuscript to the publisher. In those final days of editing, all hands were on deck. The entire book team camped out at our house. While Laura and I wrote, Judy and Stef read, corrected, asked questions, and drilled down. The laser printer never seemed to stop printing revision after revision. Sleep was not an option. We must have had three 20 hour days just hammering out the final cuts before the deadline. It was an adrenaline-fueled, book-junkie ride. By the end, we knew why they call it a deadline. We all felt dead.

We handed the book over to White Cloud just a few days long of the delivery date. Laura had succeeded in guiding our manuscript to a new level—and, in the process, gave us a beautiful addition to the title. The title went from The Mirror Effort to The Mirror Effect: More Than Soul Mates. The change was perfect…and so was Laura. She had so impressed us that we asked her to become a permanent member of Team MM.

She also warned us that the book would sit on the King’s shelf for 6 months. At the time, I didn’t believe her.
