Publishing Update: Copy Editing
I’ve just received the manuscript back from the iUniverse copy editor and I’m very impressed. Every page is like the one above. Dozens of tiny little formatting and style errors on every page! I can understand now why this part of the process took nearly five weeks. It’s a ton of work. I’m now reviewing each change, (yep, each one) and either approving or rejecting it. I’m finding myself accepting 99 percent of the proposed edits, recognizing that I’m no expert in publishing formating and style. I’m so glad I opted for the copy editing process. It’s well worth the dough, and TBLP will be a better read for it. I have 14 days to process the copy edits before the manuscript is resubmitted and we’re on to layout and cover.
