Jacket Copy

I should’ve known better than to declare the revisions finished before the text had been laid down with the photos. Today, my editor sent another set of proposed (though it must be said, minor) changes. I spent a few hours hunting up some more photos. At one point in the text, I draw attention to an anatomical difference between wolfsnails and common prey snails. I had to find a photo that showed the feature in the prey snail. Even with my handy Adobe Bridge, it took a while to go through nearly 1,000 (full resolution, raw) photographs. I’m sure we’re getting close — today I also cleared the copy edited version of the acknowledgments — but I’ll let my editor tell me when we’re done. I’m willing to keep writing until the presses run.
