Galley Proofs

If you have published a book you know there is one last peek before it goes out generally known as galley proofs. This is a set of proofs that are in the final form where you get one last chance to cross an ‘i’ or dot a ‘t’ and make sure all the previous corrections from the proofs have been added correctly. You can’t make any major changes, even one as small as adding a sentence or moving a paragraph without causing a major problem for the publisher and adding weeks to months before the book is published. Today those galley proofs arrived for us to look at. One last chance to make sure it is all perfect and then you have to let it go and let it stand as it is.

So exciting!

About tumbleweedstumbling

I have three blogs, embryogenesis explained, tumbleweed tumbling AND fulltimetumbleweed. I am a scientist, and my husband and I have written a book which was published by World Scientific Publishing in Nov 2016 called Embryogensis Explained. Full time tumbleweed was my first blog which I worked on during five years of living full time in a travel trailer. I have now retired that blog in favour of Tumbleweeds Tumbling since we bought a stick house in April 2015 and are no longer full-time. I have a blended family of five sons and one daughter, all grown up now. I am (step)grandmother to nine boys and one girl. My husband and I have two dogs and a cat. We spend summers in Manitoba, Canada, in a 480 square foot house on a half acre of land in the tiny town of Alonsa. We spend winters in the USA. My husband is retired and being a US citizen, he does volunteer work in winters for Gulf Specimen Marine Lab in Panacea Florida as their emeritus. I retired in Sept 2013 and so far I am loving it.
