Hi again John, Another question for you (not sure if I've said thanks by the way for answering all these - but thanks anyway. ) When writing drafts, it's obviously innevitable that grammatical errors and typos creep in all the time. The writer often doesn't see these which is why it's so very useful to have several sets of eyes look it over (i've had so great help here, I can tell you!). Obviously you can tell the difference between silly mistakes and grammatical ignorance but my question is, how much do these sort of errors affect you when you read through the sample chapters? Do you tend to make allowances for that? Or do you see it as evidence that the writer could have taken more time and care to tidy it before it reaches you? Thanks.
