Just to make sure I understand this and that I am doing the right thing...I don't change the wording, if the wrong verb tense is used for example, but I do correct a few words. Like when I see the letter M instead of what is clearly supposed to be th or I change the number 1 to a capital I.
These seem like OCR errors and not actual errors that the author made. Is that ok? Christina----- Original Message ----- From: "liz halperin" <lizzersagain@xxxxxxxxxxx>

Jamie, I had that happen with a recent book. The print copy was horrendous,but the scan was meticulous. Couldn't put "(sic)" in there as that's not part of the copyrighted info. (Plus it would be every two words.) I talkedto Clare about how to handle it. Info about this (clean scan of lousy print)was relayed in the "notes for reviewers for validation", but also in thesummaries. You can see how we worded it if you look up "Mom, I Need to Be aGirl." (And I just sent Claire a note the title is in lower case.) It justkilled me to see such a lousy print copy, but I had to include every error,Jim F has been quite clear with us about that in the past. We are not to change copyright info, including typos or errors in the original source:just note it for validator comments and long summary. Some of us ex-English teachers just about gnaw our fingers off at leaving the errors... The book Isubmitted that way I would normally not bother with but it's an important book in the sub-genre collection I'm developing.
