If I could re-do my first book again I would have not been so quick to recycle the final proof. After I had made the final changes and sent it back to the publisher they sent me one more copy and I checked to make sure all the changes had been made. .they had so I put the pile of papers in the recyle bin as I already had too many copies of the manuscript. In a little while the sample book came and it looked great so I threw away all the rest of the manuscript copies and deleted them on my harddrive to make room . . . but one paragraph on the very last page got printed wrong somehow and an earlier version of the bio on the photographer for the book was used instead of the corrected one. .which seems like a little thing but the paragraph they used held some out right wrong information and left out the good information. Which wasn't a little thing after all because it was an embarrassment to the photographer and she hasn't been able to help promote the book at all. I would never have thought things could change again after you approved the final corrections. SO learn from my mistake and don't throw away that final copy and cover your correction steps. Although once the book is out, you can't change it, it would have helped my relationship with the photographer at the time if I could have had the proof that I had indeed made the change. Fortunately for me she is a very forgiving and wonderful person and is still my dear friend . . we just don't talk about my book.
