The book is completed, but I’m working on some of the final publishing details. The final copy was submitted to the publisher and I received a proof copy yesterday. The idea of the proof copy is to make sure the book looks ok and doesn’t have any errors. Unfortunately, there was a major problem with the cover, so there wasn’t much suspense about whether I could approve it or not.
There is always one more step.

I found out about this story from some commenters on a recent yard sale post. The post (which wasn’t worth linking to) asks if it is ethical to buy something at a yard sale which is underpriced.
