Finished!

At least with the galleys. The index comes next.

I find the who author process fascinating. No matter how many times you look at it, there’s always something that can or should change. In some cases, a typo has managed to get through despite spell-check, several thorough going-overs, a copy editor, another going-over, a typesetter, and another going-over. And I’m not still guaranteeing there still won’t be some little glitch that makes its way into the final version. But I am confident that all the “facts” are right, even if readers might vehemently disagree with some of my opinions. I know one little factual error at the beginning of a book can poison the rest for me because I’ll be all “what else is wrong” rather than just going with the flow. I get like that sometimes and not proud of it.

Anyway, thanks to all of you out there who have sent good wishes and kind words. It’s very much appreciated.

Be sociable, share the Bookshelf!
