Copyedits for Tiernay (working title) West arrived late last week, bringing the book one step closer to becoming real.

I’m about a third of the way through reviewing it now. Writers like to complain about copyedits–and when they’re bad, they can indeed be quite bad–but the copyeditor on this one has done a thorough, thoughtful job so far–I’m impressed and appreciative.

And you have to admire a copyeditor who finds out for you that while “Rattlesnake Venom” is not a real drink, “Viper Venom” is. 🙂
