Hi, Melissa,

I recently proofread your submission "Long Summer Nights."  It was nearly a 
perfect scan!  Proofreading was extremely easy; you did all the hard work!

  When I submit a book, I always put in my comments whether this will be an 
easy proof or complicated one. I also try to include information in the 
description as to whether it has strong language, descriptions of sex, or 
violence. I think more submitters should do this, so proofers know what they 
are in for. I always put my email in the comments, so the proofer can contact 
with me with any problems.

    I'm finding it hard to find anything to proofread partly because I'm so 
picky *smile*
    that is why  I did some children's books because I love them, but I knew 
there  would be no surprises such as strong language violence and explicit 
discriptions  a person like me may have to give it up because I'll have nothing 
to do and just go back to reading.
    yeah there are numbers of books up there but if you don't know what doesn't 
have these things or ones that have quirks that sighted people need to do 
nothing against that,
    but for me being totally blind, I'm just finding it more frustrating to 
even find a book and yes I know that is just me so  disregard this whiner you'd 
call it.
    If I'm not going to be interested in a book or have the fear of what I'll 
run into in the book, well it just seems more and more the choices for me are 
gone I have nothing to choose from,
    cause there is something I can't do in it, it needs to be worked on by 
someone smarter better than me or it's old and you can't and the list goes on
    some days I just get hit with the give ups!

      Hi, if the outsourcers are no longer going to do cookbooks, who will?
