Interior layout design

The past few days I have been designing the book interior. Just about every spread has a photograph. I have completed 3 of 15 chapters. Placing the images is lots of fun, because I have been sitting on these photographs for years, just waiting for when the book would be ready to design. I actually formatted the text as I wrote the manuscript in InDesign, so that part is already taken care of.

Here's a photo that didn't make the cut. It's a scene at Camp McKay in Massachusetts, 1943 or '44. I don't know what's going on here, but it makes me chuckle.


  1. Wow, it looks like a fascinating book! When will it be published?

  2. Hi Betsy, I expect it will be available in early July.

  3. P.S. Thanks! I certainly think their story is fascinating.
