Page proofs, and a peek behind the scenes
I’m so excited. This is the stage where I get to see A Hold on Me typeset for the first time. Other than size and lack of cover, these pages look the same as they will in the finished novel, including the fonts, little flourishes for chapter headings, the title page, and other details such as the ciphers used to represent a mystical language that appears here and there throughout the novel.
This is also the last time the publisher’s proofreader and I will read through the novel. While we look for typos and other issues, the uncorrected proof ARCs (Advanced Reading Copies) will be sent out for reviews. Obviously ARCs aren’t perfect, but the novel has been copyedited and gone through several rounds of revision over the last year. It’s been quite a journey and this stage is particularly awesome.
