This is a direct quote from the email Laura sent me regarding copyedits. It should be noted that according to the bylaws of our sisterwriter relationship, Laura is responsible for all copyedits on manuscripts. This was negotiated shortly after it was determined that Lisa would always take the first stab at the document following editorial letters.
"I seriously feel like this copy editor should be paid a million dollars for having to look up things like Cleveland, OH sunset in January and addressing the fact that we don't know how to modify words correctly. Yikers. Who is this person???? And does s/he like cupcakes??? Copy edits make me feel like a failure."
We owe you an amazing ALA wrap up post and it's coming. With pictures and sparkles and maybe even a giveaway of some sort. Suffice it to say, we had an absolute blast and are SO SO SO excited to share some big news about the launch for The Lies That Bind and the new release date for The Hush Fund and and and....our heads just exploded.
More soon. XOXO
