Editing the Proof

Merry Christmas
and Happy New Year! Well, now that's out of the way. The proof for Random Acts of Fishing arrived over the holidays and the editing process began. What a pain in the neck! It's difficult to read something over and over, especially when it's one's own creation. I practically have the fly fishing stories memorized, so it is very difficult for me to find the grammar and spelling errors. It's funny how you can look at a text a hundred times and not see the errors right in front of you. Fortunately, my wife offered another pair of eyes and we spent the last two weeks looking over the manuscript and discussing changes. Back to the publisher it went. I hope everything turns out fine. Now, it's time to wait...again!
