Diary of a Wimpy 401(k) - Editing

Today I spent some time on editing. I had sent out my book to several people and have gotten some good feedback on it.

If you ever write a book, I would absolutely recommend having others take a look and do editing for you. It's almost impossible to do it yourself. I know I probably still missed and have a typo somewhere. Some of the editing also involved changing wording to make it clearer.

One thing that did make me feel a bit better - I was reading "The Christmas Sweater" by Glenn Beck ("Wimpy", I know.) recently and noticed a typo in it. I'm not going to say what or where - you can find it on your own. But its nice to know that others slip up too.

The hardest part was putting together an index. I had done one a few weeks ago and put page numbers on everything. Now with my edits, it changed the page numbers. (As Homer Simpson would say - "D'OH!")
A book like "Help! My 401(k) Has Fallen - And Must Get Up!" definitely needs a good index and also a guide for resources and websites. This book uses several resources for 401(k)s as well as financial authors.

I also had a chance to speak with Pentavision once more. I'm very excited about doing the video for it - even if I can't get Bruce Willis to star. It should be about 30-40 sec and will go up on You Tube when its done. To save on costs, I am trying to locate images myself and send them to be added in.

Also, the domain name is .You can try to go there, but the site isn't ready yet. Once the cover and video are done and also some other details, I'll get it up & running.
