My page proofs have arrived!
It is strange to be enjoying reading my own book again, as I had semi-forgotten it, being immersed in the next. But it is also a frightening process as I discover a lot more editing I should have done, and which it is now too late for, as it is set in type. Above is a corrected page proof of To The Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf. I guess in 1927 when there were no computers, the writer was allowed to make more generous alterations to the text.
But it is one step nearer to having my book in my hand, so time for a little glass of wine...
