Two great things happened today.
1. I got a preview of the cover! I don't have permission to post it until it gets the final approval but it looks pretty cool. Of course I might be distracted my my name at the bottom of the front cover...
2. I now have the "author's proof" of my book. So I need to go through it and make a couple of last minute changes and make sure I can't find any errors. Don't you hate it when you're reading a book and you find grammatical errors? You'd think enough people have gone through it at this point that there won't be any left but I would be surprised if I don't find any.
So being a total newbie to the book publishing world, I wasn't sure what I would get for the author's proof. It's a document from title page to my bio at the end (all 280 pages). Basically everything between the covers. I can't change it at all so what I do is look it over and then create a separate document that lists the page number and the change I want made, then they change it. They don't want me to change too much at this point though.
