First post!

Post by Pesellai » January 24th, 2024, 2:06 am

At last! Bluewood Publishing sent me the proof copy of The Sailor and The Carpenter, Book One of Father Serra's Legacy.

You have no idea how hard it was for me NOT to do more editing on it!!!!! :| I made absolutely as few corrections as possible. The major one was, as I guess the editor was from New Zealand, she or he didn't know that one has to use inverted exclamations in Spanish before the word or words. That I couldn't let go.

Oh yeah, drove me nuts as the second editor made changes to things the first editor changed. And, instead of a - , used a solid line instead.

Ah well, now to see just how long it takes to actual publication!!!

Congratulations on receiving the proof copy of your book! It sounds like you've put a lot of effort into ensuring it meets your standards. It can be challenging to resist the temptation to keep editing, but it's important to trust the process and let your work shine. It's great that you addressed the specific language nuances, like inverted exclamations in Spanish.

Dealing with multiple editors and their changes can be frustrating, but it's all part of the refining process. Hopefully, the final version will reflect your vision for the book. Now, it's just a matter of waiting for the publication process to unfold. Enjoy this exciting phase of seeing your book come to life!

Nofireboy and watergirl need to edit too much.
