[bksvol-discuss] Re: Western novel for a scanner

Dear Susan,

Evan scanned the dust jacket. Anyone is welcome to proofread this one. It'll be in the hands of the scanner. Let me know.


THE SURVIVOR



Tim Champlin




For twenty years, Marcel Dupre was a prisoner in the French penal colony on Guiana. After seven failed escape attempts, he succeeds and flees to the United States. On arrival, he is imprisoned in Los Angeles, but again escapes to find sanctuary in a ruined mission in northern California. At liberty he is a threat to the French government, since he has written a memoir of his career in the French Foreign Legion. They have hired a gang of mercenaries to destroy both Dupre and his manuscript.

Jay McGraw, express messenger for Wells Fargo & Company, is given the task of locating Dupre and transporting his precious manuscript to a New York publisher. But it is a test of survival as McGraw and Dupre are pursued by a desperate pack of cutthroats who will stop at nothing to achieve their goal.



Always with love,



Lissi

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: M dashes and fonts


Back when I was learning to type in high school different typewriters had
different numbers of keys. Some typewriters did not have a 1 key, so it
was necessary to represent a 1 with an l. As I recall, most typewriters
did not have a dash, so since a dash is simply a rather long hyphen it was

represented with two hyphens. Perhaps I am remembering wrong, but I seem
to recall that some typewriters did have a dash key. As I sit here before
a computer key board with all the various keys that did not even exist
back then on any typewriter I do kind of wonder why there is still no dash

key. Whatever the reason, I still retain the convention of using two
hyphens for the dash. I can't think of any situations in which you would
have a double hyphen without it being a dash, but if there are any then
the context of the double hyphen should let any of us know that it is a
dash. That is why when I used the word dash I meant double hyphen, at
least I meant that is how I would type a dash. To me a double hyphen is a
dash.

Hi Mayrie,

In the days when I took dictation on the dictaphone, if someone said
dash, they meant two hyphens, not one hyphen.  If they said hyphen, they
meant one hyphen, not a dash, which was two hyphens.  Thus, I do not
understand what you mean when you say we were never told to convert
M-dashes to dashes. (smile)

Hi Roger,

Never were we told to convert em dashes to a dash.  It used to be
necessary
to convert them to two hyphens, but now the conversion tools do this for

us.
A dash is a hyphen creating a compound word, an em dash, or in the old
days,
two hyphens denoted a pause in the reading.  Very, very different
things, so
if people are converting em dashes to a single hyphen or dash, they're
not
helping at all!

Mayrie

As I recall, we were told some time back that it is better if we change
the
m dashes to a dash, but it is not required.

Ah something else I didn't know.  I have been changing those crazy M-s
to
1
dash.  One less step I guess!  Sorry Cindy for the misinformation.

Cindy good news you can leave the m dashes in since the braille
translation
software can now read them correctly, as far as fonts go, I'll let
someone
else answer that. Smiley good to have you back again.

Ugh, I have proofread before, but there are things I should remember.
If I have to do a training book, not sure I will cause I'm not sure I
have the time.

First of all, if the book has m dashes, do we take those out, or do
they translate into double hyphens. Or should they be changed to --.
Second, am I supposed to go through this book and find fonts to
change.
Some of these say 11 point, not greater than 14.

Metyhinks these are my only questions about the book.

Cindy
