When Wildcat in Moscow was finished, I did a deal with a start-up publisher who edited it.
Man, what a disaster!
I read it the other day and found a dozen missed mistakes. Now I know what the company didn't last.
I've corrected them and updated the book, complete with new cover. Still, I wonder how many people saw these problems and thought, "Hmmm, that Storm can't punctuate for toffee!"
Editing is tough and what I do now is:
- Write the book on my PC
- Convert it and read it on my iPad
- Send it to my brother (Hi Ian!) for feedback
- Send it to Julie (Hi Julie!) who points out all my errors
- Leave it a week
It's a pain but I think I got all the typos now. What do you do to make sure your books are in good shape?
