2. Reading on the job
When I first get a manuscript, I need to prepare it for the copyeditor. So I have to read through it. Then I read through it again before sending it back to the editor. Then I check it before it goes to production, and again when it’s in first, second, and third pass. Finally I read it one more time when I review the epub. Good thing I love to read. The book could be something hot and outrageous, like The Average American Marriage by Chad Kultgen; or something timely and urgent, like Ralph Nader’s The Seventeen Solutions; or something deeply thought-provoking, like Coming of Age on Zoloft by Katherine Sharpe. It’s never boring.
