I’m learning new terminology. A mock galley is an edited copy of my manuscript printed out in the book font and format, using the same page size and margins so it looks pretty much the way the book is going to look once it’s printed. That’s where I am now in the editing process. I’m going over the “mock galley,” checking the manuscript for errors, one last time and making sure that it reads the way I want it to.
This is my last chance to make changes and after the number of times I’ve read through this, one would think I couldn’t possibly find anything else to change. Wrong! I’m still finding minor changes I want to make. Mostly, it’s places where I want to delve deeper into the character’s POV. I think getting inside the characters head strengthens the story and adds depth to the characters.
But will my editor like the changes?
Guess I’ll just have to wait and see.
