copyedit done done done

copyeditedThis is what a marked-up manuscript page looks like.

Mostly the corrections have to do with hyphenation, commas and similar matters, but the copyeditor does have a query here — she’s asking me to make sure I’m using the right names, as the text on page 1060 conflicts with the text here on page 1077. Which is very possible; I mess up like this all the time. So you can see this is where the copyeditor is invaluable.

The ms. goes back to Bantam on Monday. The next stage is galley proofs, in six or eight weeks, I’d reckon. Then the ARCs (advance reader’s copies, sometimes called uncorrected galleys), come out and go off to reviewers and other such people.
