Reading progress update: I've read 1 out of 165 pages.

Existence - Abbi Glines

And this is in the acknowledgements. Wow.

 

I have to start by thanking my kids, who tolerated the dirty house, lack of clean clothes, and my mood swings, while I wrote this book.....

 

My best friend, Monica, who once again read it from start to finish in less than twenty-four hours in all it's rough draft glory to give me her opinion.

 

First, good grief, teach your kids to do the laundry and help you clean the house? How old are they?

 

And second, she says "in all it's rough draft glory". There should be no apostrophe in "it's". Isn't that a really amateurish mistake? Shouldn't a writer and an editor be immune to that stupid little error?

 

But nobody caught the mistake and here it is, in the officially published version.....gah.

 

This is going to be ugly, I can tell.
