I’m very close to finishing my first proofread/edit of the manuscript. And yes, I know that you should not try to do both of those things at the same time. Doesn’t stop me trying.
This time around, I have decided to order a proof copy (maybe two if they will let me get more than one) and sit with it, taking my time, to really go through it. I know that even then, there will be errors I will miss. That’s why I want a second copy, so my husband can go through it too.
I ordered a proof copy of my previous novel, “The Alien Visitation Chronicle,” and it helped immensely with the proof reading. There is something more compelling about the words on an actual piece of paper as opposed to looking at them on a computer monitor, phone, or tablet.
So, hopefully, in another month or so “The Many Misadventures of Tall Guy and Short Gal” will be ready for publication.
Even though this will be my third novel, it still excites me to think about it. I hope never to lose that feeling.
