The Prime – Proofreading Done


I’ve just done my last pass of the proofreading and editing of The Prime. The corrections were getting pretty trivial, so I decided it was time to move on. Now I’m going to try something new with this book. With my previous books I went on from final proofing to formatting the final presentation version of the ebook. Only after that did I record it for the audiobook. My reasoning was that it was a lot easier to make corrections to text than to audio, so don’t do the recording until you have the final text version complete. That is changing this time. I’m going to use the reading and recording as the final proofing. Reading it out loud can sometimes expose errors or awkwardness, so it will give me one last chance to improve it before releasing it into the wild. On the downside, it means a longer wait for publication. On the upside, it means a shorter wait for the audiobook after publication.

There’s something else I have to sort out. The Prime has been my working title, and I’ve begun to think of it as the real title, but I’m not sure about that. I’ve been trying to think of something to replace it with, but nothing is coming to me yet.

No problem, right? Lotsa time.

      mixedupmeme, before you run out of Prime Time, would you recommend Green Comet’s blog? Yes or No?

    merry mae does not give up. WordPress keeps popping up and insisting she should be there instead of on Blogger. (and she agrees) but no can do now. 🙁 Sorry for making a mess on your blog. Come on over and make a mess on mine. 🙂

        Yeah, you need to get a picture in there.

          Probably best without a picture! Maybe a design but no picture!

            Okay. A picture of a design, then.-)

        Here it’s the link but not the avatar. It’s probably got to do with Blogspot vs WordPress.
