It was a nice weekend. John made a big fuss over my book proof — he said little about the dedication (he’s very shy about any attention focused on him, unlike his girlfriend), but I know it pleased him greatly.
He had a surprise for me too!
Aren’t they gorgeous? He put his hands over my eyes when I was walking into his living room, and there they were on the dining table. I carefully brought them home tonight. Whatta guy, huh? 🙂
OK, so I’m up to page 85 of my final read. So far, I’ve seen one missing closed quote. If that’s the only typo, I will be surprised. But of course, I’m seeing other bits that I want to tweak. I promise, this will be the last time. I promise. Once I do these last-minute tweaks, I will resubmit the proof; they have to approve it again (rolling eyes). And when they do, I am not going to request another proof. I’m going to say “finito” and put it on sale.
After that, I’ll have to do some reformatting and so forth to make a version for the Kindle. First things first. Fingers crossed that I’ll be able to figure that part out myself. But in the meantime, the paperback version will be available.
I won’t be seeing New Guy tomorrow (sniff), but I’ll use the found time to get this thing read and fixed already. I’m hoping to have it finalized before the week is out. Then I can celebrate once again with him next Monday. Can’t have too much celebrating, can I?
This afternoon, I showed John a couple of the clips from Spanking Court. He watched closely. Too closely. Gave him ideas. Damn that Court Disciplinarian anyway. 🙂
Hope everyone had a nice weekend, particularly you Crimson Moonies in Chicago!
