Plodding through final pass of first pass of “The Jesus Cow.” It’ll be out in May of this year (early listen here). There are five pages like these and 100+ (maybe 200+; I didn’t count) markups/changes in the manuscript. Found things like the word “capacious” used twice within the space of 9 pages. Typed “shown” where I meant “shone.” That sort of thing. And this doesn’t even reflect all the hard work by editors and copyeditors. And yet there will likely still be a few errors and head-smackers when the book comes out in May. And if someone politely points them out, I will thank them and see what I can do. But if someone says something along the lines of, “I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU LEFT OUT A COMMA!” I will smile warmly and reply, “Well, why don’t you go right ahead and insert one wherever you choose…”
These are the days I can’t even come close to expressing sufficient gratitude for being allowed to do what I do. Thank you to all the six directions.
