7/17/2012 Finished. Done. Finito. Fertig. Race over.

Lorraine and I finished proofing the manuscript tonight. That could mean the book’s done, although Matt Heidenry’s given us the option of checking a new PDF for tiny mistakes during his vacation next week.  There are only a handful left, if any. Now it’s on to the next phase, which is promotion. So tell me, should I check for little stuff, or should we relax next week?
