I received The Spirit Keeper proof copy Monday afternoon and have since spent the better part of the past two days combing through each page for any errors I might have missed during the (previous) final read-through.
Reading your manuscript in final book format versus on a computer screen is very different; you're able to catch grammatical errors and formatting issues you might have missed otherwise. I highly recommend this step instead of saying, "The cover looks nice, so it must be good to go." PS - My cover looks very nice.
All those little pieces of paper sticking out represent something that needs to be fixed, whether it's a typo, missing punctuation, a word that doesn't sound right (to me), or an entire sentence that needs to be deleted. I take my book through this process so that I can give you, the reader, an entertaining and (hopefully) error-free story.
On that note, the print version of The Spirit Keeper will be available, fingers crossed, next week!
