My 48 Problems
Just finished going through the galley looking for humiliating mistakes and instances of poor writing. I found 48 of them! They've all been scrubbed clean now, don't you worry! But here is a message for any reviewer who receives the galley: just remember, the novel is now better in 48 spots - or at least different, which is just as good as better, really. So I don't want to see a lot of wisecracks like this: "AWESOME is anything but." Or "AWESOME? Hardly." Or "Pendarvis might have more honestly titled his book MEDIOCRE." And there are tons of other things you might say that are even cleverer and wittier than those! But don't.
