Reading the Green galleys for the trade hardback. It's interesting, seeing the book all laid out. Things really are different. Slow going, because I have to pay a lot of attention. There's a few places where I did something unfortunate. No rewrites at this stage, but I can alter a word or two sometimes. There's a few more places where the typesetter did something unfortunate. My favorite so far:

"Yet munk where you are now."

Um, yeah.

Anyway, I soldier bravely onward. Need to have this in next week, which won't be any issue at all.

Heh. Haven't come across that one yet. It's remarkably clean, I think.

Munk is shorthand for chipmunk, obviously. :)
