Copyediting the book
I’ve now got Chapters 1-3 back from the copyeditor. At first glance, there’s not too much damage, and most of it is fairly innocuous.
So the difficult question is: when I have a problem with something, how do I deal with it? Just change it back? Write a long note explaining? Curse copyeditors faffing about to justify their existence?
The good news is, the slightly controversial bit seems to have survived. I won’t say more until that’s definite, lest it reach the ears of someone who objects.
Oh, btw I’ve started to make apachetutor into the book’s companion site. This was long-planned, but needed a round tuit.
