Proofreading

Typed up all my corrections for D2L on first pass galleys! Remarkably clean manuscript, and I didn't cringe too badly, reading my old writing. Almost no typos, no real howlers, just some repeated words, a dangling modifier, a line of dialogue I didn't like, that kind of thing.

And though it's just a placeholder now, it seems more "real" to go to the Simon and Schuster website and see a page for me here!

I use the thesaurus often to help me not reuse the same words over and over. Especially when I'm referring to the zombies in my story. I use undead, ghoul, monster, creature, and whatever else I can come up with in an attempt at not using the identical description in the same chapter if I can help it. Spelling gets run through spellcheck, although I am careful also to make sure that I am using the correct word to begin with. And my program also helps with grammar. Even so, I still find stuff that could be dusted up. Hopefully my editor will go over it with a fine-toothed comb and not overlook any errors that got by.

Congrats on the Simon & Schuster page!

oh yes, it's funny, the stuff that slips by! I hear you about "zombies" - you're on your guard not to repeat that word. But then "guy" or "under" or some other innocuous word shows up in four sentences in a row!

Please tell me your publisher will make your works available on the kindle, etc.? I know this question is off comment, but I didn't know hwere else to ask this. I have just discovered the world of zombie horror and your works look fantastic but would much prefer an electronic version.

absolutely, Scott, I think you'll find most of my works available in Kindle and many other formats, at Amazon.com and Smashwords.com
