The proofreading is taking much longer than I had anticipated. Each time I receive corrected proofs back from the publishers I hope that we have got all the mistakes rectified, only to find that I or my proofreader, Alice, have found yet more corrections are needed.
My travels round the USA have caused further delays as there were some days when I did not have computer access or else I was spending most of the day driving … but I am back in the UK now.
The next round of proof corrections are due this coming week … so we live in hope !!!
