is in and I was flapping about how the internal B&W images would look, you just don't know until you see them........they'll well do.

Also managed to get PMs ace changes to the back cover, sorted.

Spotted a couple of typos but that is absolutely inevitable and I'll iron them out in due course.

Hurray, at last it's a real thing with like pages and that.

Cheers Sir Bull, it's a right relief, daft things like that can set you back and without my comp it wouls have been complicated.

They're bot on glossy paper so they are what the are and I was worried about some of them but they're all good enough for me and I'm quite picky.

I'm extremely nervous about seeing this. I will take each typo very personally.

When they do a "This is your life" for Mick, you can appear and say what an arsehole he was to work with, say he rejected all your corrections as he wanted the book in his words as he says them.

Perhaps we could have a 'sticky' topic where we can post them?

Maybe even a "proof-reader wannabes" topic?

Butts you do have to understand that people are keener with it being self=published. They skip the typos in Faber & Faber's new tome, hardly registering them.r proofing has been spotless but you will never ever do a perfect job.'

You're a fully qualified proofer and the first words they uttered to you on that course should have been, 'You might think you

There is only one book in the whole world under 30 years old that has no typos in it. ONE OF Dickens's books went to 11 re-prints before they stopped getting rid of the typos, stray commas, double spaces etc.

All I can say, and this completely genuine, you've been an absolute pleasure to work with, you're hugely professional and you did so much more than proof it. Some of your simplifying of my rambling sentences was inspired.

Show me any book (other than one) under 30 years old and show you the missed corrections. It's like the kids asking for a penny for their Guy outside Tesco's.....unavoidable.

Butts we have to let go now.

We've still got our memories and no-one can take those away from us.

Fantastic, ive still got some Waterstones vouchers left from my birthday that ive been reserving for something. The proofing challenge has just clinched it for this book.
