A day-by-day history of U2, now in its second edition.

Has It Really Been a Month?

By on March 28, 2008 in The Book with 2 Comments

It has. One month since the last post, which was actually published while I was in Santa Clara, California. In the meantime, I’ve also been to:

  • Portland
  • Seattle
  • New York
  • San Francisco area (again)

So, yeah, just a little bit busy with travel. But if you’re curious to know what’s going on with U2, A Diary, here’s what I know:

  • Omnibus has selected a designer.
  • The designer has been working on something called a BLAD (Book Layout and Design), which I understand to be like a promotional mini-version of the book, which the publisher takes around to various book industry trade shows to drum up retail interest in the book. (I’m hopeful to see one of these BLADs soon and might be able to post about it here on the blog).
  • Omnibus is wrapping up work on a Beatles book and will then dive in to production on U2, A Diary.

So, things are moving, albeit somewhat slowly at this point. Because we gave ourselves a lot of lead time between the due date of the manuscript and the expected publishing date, we’re not at all behind schedule or anything like that. I suspect I’ll be posting more in the coming weeks/months as things pick up.

Now you know. 🙂
