Oh, I just realized - I'm thinking about Microsoft Word.  Is that what you're 
using to edit the book?  If you are using Word, select the Edit menu, then 
select Replace, put the author's name in the first field, leave the second 
blank, and select the Replace All button.  It should tell you how many 
replacements were made.
  If you're not using Word, I'm not familiar with the other editors.  Sorry!

  Hi Carrie,

Thanks for the info.  Pardon my ignorance, but how do I do a global replace?  
Could you give me a step by step procedure. I don't believe that is in rank 
spelling or spell check, is it?  I still have a lot to learn about all of this.
Thanks again.

  Hi Bud,
What I do is to add an extra character to the author's name where I want it to 
remain (like on the title and copyright pages), then I do a global replace of 
the author's name to nothing, and delete the extra characters.  Yes, it's a 
pain, but it's better than deleting each one by hand.
(As an example, if the author is John Milton, I change the name to Johnx Milton 
on the title and copyright pages, delete all of the John Milton names 
everywhere, then change Johnx Milton back to John Milton.)
Just a suggestion, Carrie

   Hi Gang,

   Is it possible to delete something that repeats over and over like 
   the author's name or the title with either spell check or rank 
   spelling? I can't figure out how it could be done but I'm sure it 
   can be done if I knew what I was doing. That would save a lot of 
   time from going through the book page by page and doing it by hand.
