A Nice Note from a Not-Easy-to-Please Book Designer
Thanks for the great work. Hopefully your client-base will recognize these efforts. This organization distinguishes you from the garden-variety "book reader" wannabe editors.
The "organization" to which he's referring is the use of XML style sheets. Easy to do, and book designers / typesetters love it when it's done right. It's the ever-so-rare equivalent of, as a copyeditor, getting a writer who actually knows how to punctuate. Makes life easier and projects go much more quickly.
That these labors were expended on a self-published romance novel . . . well, underlying my long-standing corporate motto, the check deposits just the same.
