I have it and it’s perfect

I have the new approval copy in my hot little hands. It arrived yesterday. It is 99.999% perfect. I love it, love it, love it. But today I have to part with it.

I promised to send a pre-release copy to the local rep of one of the big book wholesalers, so she could read it and approve it. Getting the wholesaler to stock it would be a massive breakthrough, so I must sacrifice the baby.

Oh oh – how can I part with it? I shall have to wait another ten days for its 50 identical siblings to arrive at my door.

Congratulations, although I dread to ask what the .001% was that was wrong! I'm looking forward to reading it.

The .001% that was imperfect was
a/ the cover was satin and not matt as requested
b/ the weblinks in the About the Author section, and on the title-verso page (ooh, I do like using these technical phrases) are underlined, and that looks funny in hard print.
But it is likely that there is only me in the whole world who cares about either of these things. And the satin cover was lovely in its own right. Aren't you pleased you aren't a picky person?
