PURCHASE AND CHALLENGE   4 comments

Want to test your copyediting skills? I’d like to suggest a deal that might help both of us.

“Figs & Pomegranates & Special Cheeses: a Biblical Love Story” will be a moderately edited version of “Mrs. Job.” Adding a little more action to meet the needs of ┬áTM Publishing who, in the end, ran out of money and didn’t publish the new edition.

So, anyone buying “Mrs. Job” at the reduced rate will be getting basically the same story. And I want to be sure the new version is as error-free as possible.

Therefore, here’s my challenge. Buy “Mrs. Job” and search her for typos or other obvious errors. Just don’t mess with the “g” or “G” in “god/God” because that’s intentional to reflect Dara’s conflict in struggling to accept Job’s one jealous God.

Also, please don’t quibble about things like using colons, or dashes, for example. Things that are a valid matter of choice.

For every error you find, e-mail me and claim a $1.00 rebate to the limit of the cost of the book (without tax and postage.)

If it should happen you find none, you can feel free to let people know how good a copyeditor I am.

That’s it.

My daughter pointed this out today. Challenging — even a bit scary — but so important. An excerpt from a speech by Theodore Roosevelt.http://www.theodore-roosevelt.com/trsorbonnespeech.html
