Always order a proof of your book. Always. I just received the proof copy of Squirrel Mafia. The content, the front and back cover are awesome. The color version of the book is amazing but expensive hence why we created a black and white copy of the book. But in the black and white copy some of the pictures need to be fixed so we will be revisiting them.
So while the release was planned for August 12th, we are moving it a bit to get it done right. This probably involves going out into the wild to take more pictures of these little demons from hell.
I rather move my release date and have a product I can be proud off. Why would you not order a proof? I’m not sure but there are authors out there who feel this is not needed. I disagree. I will always get a proof of each book.
The good part of receiving my proof yesterday was the fact my in-laws were in town. One of the chapters is dedicated to my father in law’s mother. He said down and read it as he chuckled. They both love it. That made my day.
Soon I will be able to give them a copy, a decent copy, so they can read the entire book.

There is nothing like that feeling when you know someone has read what you have written and “gotten” it. I love knowing when I have written something funny and it made someone laugh, or written a poem that moved someone or written a story someone finds exciting! I agree you with you about proofs, too; the more proof-reading and double checking the better!
