We’ve had my manuscript under a microscope for about six week. Five sets of eyes have looked at it, some repeatedly. Tomorrow night we’ll finish. The next day, Lorraine will take it to Matt Heidenry. He’ll send back a PDF so we can still check for very minor stuff the next week, while he’s on vacation. But we may not even bother. It’s inches from being ready to go.
