Copy edits are an author's last chance to make changes to her story. There will be one more read through of the galleys in a few weeks' time, but that is meant to be a proofread only, not another edit. So, this is it.
And I have a rather bad cold that I'm working through, so I would appreciate prayers for my stamina and health over the next two weeks (through Thanksgiving, yes) while I read through the manuscript and tackle the copy edits, and anything else that needs tweaking and polishing.
Deadline is December 5th.
