Got my latest proof in the mail from CreateSpace.
I think the brighter book cover image looks much better.
I am going ahead and accepting this proof and proceeding with the process. I have been over every word. I am not totally 100% satisfied with it.
- There is a place in the book, secondary to a revision, where the pronoun “he” was used, instead of the proper noun “Nathan”.
- There is a place where quotation marks were used around an enclosed, handwritten letter erroneously.
- The preposition “to” is missing from a sentence.
- My chapters were long and I opted to put the chapter titles in the header on the left side. I know it isn’t customary, but I thought it best, now I am not so sure.
None of the issues are the fault of anyone but me. I would submit another manuscript and make the changes, but each time I have done that in the past, CreateSpace has screwed up something else, and I don’t want to risk it. It takes too many days/weeks back and forth to get any changes accomplished. I do understand now why it takes so long for traditional publishers to get anything accomplished. It seems the more steps and people involved in the process; the more likely it is to be a lengthier process.
