If you’re writing and self-publishing a book, for the love of avocados, get a printed proof copy!
And once you’ve got a proof copy, go through it with a fine-tooth comb and make sure it’s exactly as you want it to be.
(Fun fact: until a few years ago, I thought a fine tooth-comb was a comb for your teeth, and never questioned it. In my head, the hyphen was in the wrong place. I now realise how ludicrous that is.)
In today’s episode of Moxie Books TV, which you can find here:
I run through:
- How to use your proof copy to eliminate any mistakes (and save you a small fortune on printing problems)
- What to look out for on the cover of your book (lessons learned from painful and expensive experience so you don’t have to make my mistakes)
- Why a proof copy is essential (even if it costs you a few quid more)
- How to pre-order my new book hurrah! (See link below)
