My grandmother’s story had been typed out and published in an old-fashioned format that was tatty and wouldn’t last much longer. Ann had a look at the manuscript and we then discussed exactly what I had in mind as an end product.
To start with I went to Office Works and they copied the manuscript onto a USB stick; this was then taken to the typist and passed on to Ann for copyediting. Lu Sexton then proofread and laid it out.
Ann and I discussed what size I would like the book to be and the image for the front cover; I found a photograph of my grandmother which was appropriately placed with the title Marsie.
Lu managed the project to completion, and throughout Ann was available to help me. I made an order for six copies of the memoirs and am very happy with the result.
