TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
It seems to me that with an established author providing the content,
Marketing designing at least some of the pages and Technical Publications
doing the editing, there needs to be a definition of purpose and ownership
that is not clearly communicated by saying this document is "between"
different descriptions. If it's intended to be an instructional document,
then you probably have manual-related doc standards that should take
precedence; if it's a marketing document, then there are probably Marcom
standards that should be directing format; and if it's going to be a "real
book" that has the established author's name on it and will forever be
linked to his reputation as an author, then his "real book" expectations
So given that you are going to have to provide your print vendor with the
actual formatted document, what exactly is this thing for?
