My lips are chapped from editing.

OK, I know that sounds strange, but it's true. When I'm in final edits mode I read the manuscript aloud as I'm scanning the page, and all that talking chaps my lips. But the reading aloud helps. It's amazing what the brain fills in because your eye tells it something should be there, like a comma, when in reality it's not there. Reading aloud catches more errors and typos.

So the really good news in all of this is that Captain Sinister's Lady is now in final edits, which is keeping me on schedule for a spring publication! Yea!
