The Typo Gremlins Have Been At Work Again

I really thought I'd have the Half-Vampire POD ready for sale this week.  Our librarian is pressuring me to release it, as he wants to buy a bunch for contests at school.  And I have several people who want to buy them as Christmas presents.  Not to mention the fact that my seventh-graders are actually whining about how long it's taking me to get it for sale.
But I keep finding more and more typos.  I swear they weren't there before!  I think the typo cybergremlins are sneaking in and messing things up for me, not at all unlike the gremlins who attacked aircraft in WWII.
And so I am reading my own book for what must be the tenth time since last June.  I'm heartily sick of it by now, so I hope I'm not overlooking things still, or else I'll have to do this yet again and have not just a 3rd proof copy but also a 4th.  (Perish the thought!)  By sneaking in a little reading time in between grading tons and tons of tests this weekend, I managed to reach chapter 10.  I hope to have it finished and to order a proof #3 by next weekend.
Fingers crossed.


  1. Looking for typos is the worst because we never seem to find them when we're looking!

  2. Keep at it. It'll be worth it in the end.
