Aaaaand the final book proofs arrived late last night: the final covers (dust jacket and soft back) and the interior galleys. OOooh. I had the excitement shivers! Then I went to work, looking over my own work with a super, super, super fine eye. And already I find errors. Well, two. Not a lot, right?
Let me tell you, when the publisher says you must check over your proofs, they mean it. I have found several publisher errors that trust would not fix. You must remember they (publishers) are also not perfect and they will screw up. In the world of publishing (even traditional) the responsibility of checking the galleys is yours. The error fixing is mostly up to you (even if you have an editor).
Anyway, working on the galley. Sent the cover proof off to the graphic artist who designed the cover. He can tell whether there are formatting issues. They put black and white pictures on the dust cover and on the soft cover and that will change because I sent color photos. Again, publisher error. Check everything! Assume NOTHING.
ON THE DESK: Finished the last Rowland book and have moved to the next one, SINS OF THE DEMON. This series rocks. The more I read, the more I care and am hooked. If you like urban fantasy with a touch of CSI stuff, this series is for you.
SOCIAL MEDIA: I’m on Facebook. The author page will be released later this week. I have lots of people to find and connect with, so help me to find you, please.
