My final manuscript has been proofread by myself, my developmental editor and my copy-editor. Now that I have the actual paperback proof copy in hand, I must go through it once again and proofread. I will need to do the same for the ebook version. Not my favorite task, as it does start to feel quite tedious at this stage of the game. But oh, so necessary, as I have found some things that need to be corrected that were not caught the first few times around. Goes to show how important proofreading truly is!
It has been made a bit more cozy and fun with the help of my very special four legged proofreader, as you can see in the above photo. Nothing like a soft ball of fur curled on your lap to make something tedious a bit more enjoyable. Good dog, Joie. Good dog.
