So I got my edits from Bona Fide Books and I am so tickled. Just two changes! Do I rock or what?
The first is the ever popular “The number of the subject determines the number of the verb” (thanks to Strunk and White’s Elements of Style for a clear and concise way to describe that). It was a has vs. have thing.
The second is a hyphen being needed in “flip-flop”. Who knew? Well, obviously, the editors at Bona Fide. I wanted to use go gos, which is what we called thongs back in the day, but no one knows what go gos are. And now thongs are a completely different piece of clothing, so flip-flop it is.
I’m learning so much.
I’m going to re-read what they sent me, just to make sure that it is in fact what I originally sent them. Hopefully I won’t find any additional changes that I think need to be made.
But really? Two edits? I’m in heaven.
Until the next level of heaven comes with a copy of my story in a book in my hands. Bliss? Oh yeah.
