Well, the process is almost at an end. Margaret Curelas sent me a draft of the layout to read over. It had those amazing illustrations by Galen Dara and wondrous additions like an ISBN and legal warnings. The cover art by Malcolm McClinton wasn’t in the file, but there is a preview of it on the Tyche website. I didn’t find any typos. Mind you, since I probably put them there in the first place, I didn’t expect to.
I did find many, many, many adjectives that could have been cut. Sigh. The truth that I told my students over the years is still true: you don’t work on something until it’s perfect; you work on it until you can’t stand to look at it anymore, or until the deadline looms and then you send it off.
Thank God for editors.
