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?
