On the heels of receiving a rejection from a major agent who loved my query and synopsis (“very intriguing,” she wrote) but then didn’t get hooked after all, I’m in need of some levity today. The following tweet and picture from author Melissa Harrison in my Twitter feed helped. When I first learned to proofread, my mentor told me not to forget to check titles and headings. Good advice.
I'm pretty sure a typo like this, on the first page of your book, was just as painful in 1830 as it is now. pic.twitter.com/pXvavbekGP
