Taboo Tech update

I’m almost finished with my edits.  I came across some mistakes in spelling–not just typos. (I was careless.) I had a big dictionary on my desk slide-out shelf when working on my ms last night, and I even googled a few words. Interesting about stepsisters and step siblings. And I made other changes for various reasons. Btw, because I’ve been working on Taboo Tech for so long, the characters are roaming through my mind. Really. It’s a good thing I like them!

I’ve edited a lot of stories over the years, and I know you can keep doing it forever, and even then you’ll read the finished book and shriek and fall off your chair while clutching your hair and exclaiming–How could I miss that?! I read about one author–Max Brand, possibly–whose wife proofread his books so that the same number of men who rode into the canyon rode out again–assuming they weren’t shot.
