Just a brief post for this weekend, because....
I received my galley in the afternoon mail today. Now I get to spend the rest of the weekend going through it with a fine tooth comb. Hopefully the only addition I will have to make to it, is a brief dedication page.
Can't have a good book without a dedication page.
Self publishing, where the onus is all on you to make it successful. No one will be there to catch you when you fall.
Also, no one there to hear you scream for joy either, in case you manage to catch the golden ring that is called "selling the reprint rights".
