I am at the final edit stage of my next book "Three Parts Truth" and I live in fear!

I know that no matter how many times I read it, or Sally my wonderful proofreader and Michael 'the best set of eyes' around read it, I'm sure errors will get through.

When I wrote "Mastermind" I paid $1800 (yes $1800) for a professional proofread. I don't know if this is expensive or a bargain, but it seemed a lot at the time.

I found close to a dozen error in later reads (after the first print run ....aaagggghhhh).

What a gift it is to be a great proofreader. I would much rather just write and let the words flow.

If you find an error in this blog ... please let me know.
