Something strange happened as I was proofing ‘Let’s Do Lunch’ – Create Space will give you up to 80 corrections before you have to resubmit the manuscript.
I was at page 178 when I realized I would run out of free changes.
The first thing my mind said was ‘stop at 79 and screw it.’
I could do that – or I could take a big girl pill and fixed the GDMF mistakes I made.
Am I a big girl – or am I a cheapass?
Once I got started looking at the errors – and the contract – it said ‘changes to text’ which these aren’t. They are changes to punctuation. I submitted what I had – we’ll see what comes back from them.
Everything is negotiable, well, not everything, but you never know until you ask.
So I will ask. The worst they can do is tell me ‘no.’
