RAIN OF THE GHOSTS, BOOK ONE UPDATE, Chapters Three - Nine
In my on-going shameless attempt to maintain buzz about my new novel, RAIN OF THE GHOSTS, due out in stores and on-line on December 3rd, 2013 (but available for pre-order NOW on Amazon, etc.), I'm updating you on my progress proofreading the proofs of the book. (Yes, it's ridiculous, but I did use the word 'shameless' now, didn't I?)
This is a painstaking process. I'm going through each chapter sentence by sentence, trying to be careful with each word, each punctuation point.
Today, I finished proofing Chapters Three through Nine.
Here are the only changes I've indicated so far (including those from the work I did yesterday on the Acknowledgments and Chapters One and Two):
P. vii (Acknowledgments Page)
Paragraph 2 - "Ber-nstein" should not be hyphenated between r and n.
P. viii (Acknowledgments Page)
First full paragraph - Removed comma before "too."
Paragraph 1 - Change "." at end of paragraph to "?".
Within dialogue, shouldn't this read "'Local Color'" with single quotation marks and normal upper and lower case? Or maybe just put Local Color in italics?
In last paragraph, change "eighty" to "ninety".
In first full paragraph, change "window" to "windows".
In first partial paragraph, remove the comma after "cereal".
In second to last paragraph, capitalize the T and W in "Tall Woman".
Admit it. You're intrigued.
