The good news: The galley to LFAW arrived!
The bad new: I've proofread the first 50 pages and have already found 12 mistakes that are mine, and 5 that are not. And out of the 12 that are, only 2 would be considered 'major'...a word was inverted, and a "0" where a dash should be. The others are simply an extra space between two words! Why my MS Word spell-check didn't catch it, I don't know...unless I accidentally hit 'ignore' too many times?
At any rate, it's my choice...I'll have to pay a $25 flat fee, but at $2 a correction...the extra spaces will probably end up staying in, except for the ones that weren't my fault. And hey...when LIS came out, I found 11 more corrections that I'd missed, plus the gigantic error my publisher refused to fix, because of the communication breakdown the day of the editing panal! It was a choice...let my hubby go through life-changing surgery alone, or have a properly edited book...Hmmm...I chose to be at the hospital!
