And, if you have some on the chick out list, let me know the titles and I'll take a look. I recently went to the bottom of the list and started working backwards.

And remember, releasing is not the same as rejecting... Sometimes we proofreaders decide it it is not the type or style we needed to work on at a given time.

Gwen, nobody expects scans to be perfect. That's why we have proofreaders and why scanners don't proofread their own scans. Don't give up until your books get rejected two or three times. It may be that your books can easily be fixed by proofreaders who know what they're doing. submit a couple of them with holds for grandma Cindy.

Oh bless your heart (((Cindy))) I'm
probably gonna stop volunteering.
Not because of anyone or anything here, but I'm just not
succeeding.
I'm just not getting it. I've set everything I
can tried to follow instructions for fixing things just
right.
I've even left things alone for fear of messing up a good
scan even more.
I'm just not making it with a wonderful scan that y'all
enjoy proofing.
There is always something wrong and I feel that is not fair
to y'all who work so hard to make good books.
It would be  less stress on y'all and certainly on me
so it's best that I just go back to reading what y'all put
up. I gave it my best  shot, I tried to enjoy it and I
truly tried to add books to the library that y'all would
enjoy.
But it really didn't happen as it should have, because I
never got to y'all a wonderful scan that somebody wrote back
to me a and said yea Gwen this required very little work and
was an easy proof.
I've never had an easy proof for y'all yet and I am sorely
disappointed within myself, I'm sorry I wish I could have
done better wish I could have done better but it ain't
happenin as they say.
So it's  truly time for Gwen to hang it up and let
y'all get to some good books and good books to proof for a
change.
Thanks for putting up with me for as long as you did, I'm
not sure I would have been so patient. Y'all rock!

Bless your hearts tight hugs to all and thanks for a job
well done!
Happy scanning, and happy  proofing. I'll look forward
to what y'all send up.

> Gwen submit them with a hold for Cindy--maybe you'd
better make that grandma Cindy since I think there is
another Cindy. I won't get to them for a while, because I
have at least 2 to finish first, and a third I should do,
and a fourth I said I'd do, but it is nice to vary what one
is reading. Assuming I can get the print books, I'll proof
them for you.
