Proof Copy and NaNoWriMo

June 19, 2010

I am very pleased to announce that my proof copy (purchased from http://www.createspace.com using my coupon earned in NaNoWriMo) has arrived. For those that don’t know, this is a pre-publication, or self-publication, copy of a book. It’s intended to be read through, checked, any typos and omissions corrected, before the book is properly published. Anyway, […]
