*whimper*

Ah, page proofs.

The only thing on earth that can make me feel worse about my writing is the actual published novel.

Wow, listen to that prose clunk.

Oh well, too late to change it now.

P.s. I pimp your books to co-workers on a regular basis. They like so you must be doing something right.
*g* thank you.

It would probably help if I hadn't read this book ~10 times since April.
Ten times?

I couldn't do that. I'm a slow reader, and easily bored. Plus, by the fifth pass, I'm totally word-blind -- and if that hits in the copy edits, tough.
I'm a fast reader, and easily bored. But I am dogged. :-P

I usually have read the entire thing four or five times by the time I'm done with the *first draft,* actually. Then there are two or three more drafts before it goes to my editor, and then the revision, and then the CEM, and then...

the page proofs.

I usually don't even crack the finished books when they're delivered to me, except to look at the typeface.
