So, just entered the corrections for two final proofreaders for TANO.
This is somewhat tedious because I’m making identical corrections in the Kindle file, the paperback file, and the hardcover file — so I make the same change three times in three different documents. BUT, though this is tedious, there are now few enough corrections that it is less tedious to do it this way than to destroy the paperback and hardcover versions and recreate them from the corrected Kindle file.
What that means is, not a lot of corrections, yay! This only took, let me see, about half an hour.
By this time you won’t be surprised to hear this, but:
Cathie found 5 more quite dire typos that everyone else had missed.
Hanneke found an incredible 22 MORE obvious, egregious typos that EVERYONE ELSE HAD MISSED. That’s a record so far for unique obvious typos.
All those have now been corrected and I’m going to load the corrected paperback version to KDP and order ONE MORE proofing copy for me to read ONE MORE TIME.
And that’s it. We’re done. I need to fill in the acknowledgments sections and add the page numbers to the ToC for the paper editions and, come to think of it, add a clickable ToC to the ebook edition, because I don’t think I’ve done that yet.
But TANO is basically good to go, and from the time I picked it up to this moment was about two months, and that is ASTOUNDING. Everyone who helped with super-fast turnaround of comments and proofing, thank you so, so much.
