A New Paper Book Proof


I got my first paper book proof last week on Wednesday and have been working hard reading the whole book to make sure there weren’t any mistakes.  Unfortunately I found many.  I worked hard to read the whole book again in just a few days so I could correct all of the errors so that I could republish the e-book files and order another proof.  Done and done!

I republished everything last night and today the e-book files went live again with the updated file.  Tonight I got an email saying that my paper book was ready for me to order a proof which I did.  So now all I can do is wait for it to arrive and hope there are no new errors that I might have missed lol.  I probably should read the whole thing again before the proof gets here.  I’m pretty sure it’s all good now and I have nothing to worry about.  Then again that’s what I said when I originally published my book lol.

I’m tired.  Not just because it’s 1:30 A.M., but because I am tired of reading my book so many times.  Writing it only took 2, maybe 2 1/2 months, the rest of the 7 months was all editing.  I read my book about 50 to 100 times, I lost count so I can’t even say how many times I’ve read it.  I just want to wash my hands of the whole thing and say it’s finished, buy it lol.  But, it’s my baby and I want to give it all of the attention it desires.  It is my first book and if I plan on writing any future books I have to get used to reading it again and again and again until I can’t see ANY errors at all.  But that would be obsessive compulsive, which is why I published it when I did lol.

Ok seriously, it’s 1:30 A.M., I am exhausted so goodnight!
