and Copy Editing

This is the second edition of the Proofer's Perspective.  About 50 seconds after I sent out the first edition, I decided I needed to make some more changes to the website.  (Isn't that always the case - right after you've done something, you realize you could have done it better!)  So, there's a small change on the website from last month. It will allow me to host the Author Interviews and Helpful Hints in one place, so it will always be easy for you to find!

If you have any topics you'd like to me to cover, drop me a line and let me know!  I look forward to working with each and every one of you to create the best manuscript possible!

L.C., thanks for taking some time to answer some questions for us.
1) What were your favorite books growing up? Number one, and I still read it every once in a while, is the Phantom Toll Booth by Norton Juster. Ooh, The Secret Garden for the secret place all your own but I have a black thumb despite growing up on an herb farm in CT. Eloise goes to Paris and Eloise goes to Moscow, I’m always trying to figure out how to either release or tame my inner Eloise. Black Beauty for the redemption. Ursula Le Guin’s Wrinkle in Time series, Sci Fi and a girl lead! Any of Maurice Sendak’s books –I can still recite Chicken Soup with Rice from memory. I could probably fill a hard drive with the list. Maybe that is why I am starting a YA (they didn’t even have the category when I was a kid) series soon with my daughter.
2) Now that you have, let’s say—some life experience, what would you tell your younger self? I’d  give her a copy of  READ MORE
