Clicking that damn send button!


sendSometimes, clicking the send button can be the hardest thing to do.

I’ve been editing Raus! Untoten! volume 1. I shall shortly be moving on to editing volume 2. Before that however, I needed to send the final versions of Volume 1’s stories over to be published.

And that’s when things got to be difficult. I know for a fact that neither I, nor the authors, can catch every mistake. It’s there every time I read a book by someone else. No matter how big the publisher is, no matter how much money they throw at it, there will be a mistake. Some might have more than one.

It’s this knowledge that makes clicking the send button so damn hard. I’ve gone through the stories, the authors have gone through the stories and the publishers have gone through the stories, but it’s my name on the spine, my named that followed the absolutely awesome, amazing words Edited by.

And it’s those arse knuckle bastard words that will damn me as well.

Needless to say, I puckered up and clicked the send button. My first ever edited by me anthology. God help me.
