Well, I'm almost done reading through my galleys. It is exciting to see what my pages will look like. One frustrating part of it is as I read through what I submitted months before, I find little things I wish I could change. Not anything big, just a few things I would like to reword. There are some sentences I wish I could take out. But, it's too late for a lot of that. I can only really change errors or certain things the publisher has recommended.

However, even after the book has been published, I find myself wishing I could change minor things, but it's too late. That's just how it is. So, I'll finish reading my galleys this week and send them back to the publisher, keeping my fingers crossed that I caught all the errors.

This part is always exciting, followed up by seeing the cover which is equally exciting. Can't wait for that!

This is why I don't read my books after they're published. I know I'll want to change everything!!

I'm so excited about your galleys!

When will you get to see your cover, Marcia? I always like to see covers.

Isn't it funny how we writers can rewrite a manuscript a jillion times, and yet when we read it in print, there are STILL things we wish we could change?

Congrats on your new book! Can't wait to see the cover.

Thanks for the comments. I'll definitely show my cover once I get it. Well, I'm sending the galleys off today. There's no going back now.
