Saigon Shuffle 2.0 is an updated (expanded) edition of a book we published ten years ago. My husband, Dominic Sondy, and I have been a creative team for decades and when we published the first edition, self publishing was just becoming available. This edition is a much better book on several levels: the writing (Dom) and the design (me).
The tools used had gotten better and my own skills at managing long-form publications had also improved... A LOT. An extensive amount of time was invested in preparation:
* Setting up folders
* Organizing images
* Creating master pages
* Testing character and paragraphy styles
I knew that the ebook or Kindle version follow once we had the print version completed and published. Thus, organizing my workflow and project folders would make the adaptation easier.
The ePub export from InDesign was messy and did not produce the desired results. I subsequently used Apple's iBooks Author to manage and create the digital version of the book.
