    Page proofs! Only $1.25 per change.

    Fortune Cookie Chronicles Page Proofs

    I got my page proofs back from Twelve/Hachette, along with a very stern warning: “This will be your only opportunity to review the typeset pages, so please be sure that all changes you wish to make are included.”

    It also says, “Each change costs roughly $1.25. However this is not a per line or per page charge. For example if you have five different changes to one line, that counts as five changes, or about $6.25 for that line. If you have two additional changes to that page, it would come to a total of $8.75 for that page alone.”

    Though the letter also informs me that authors have an alteration allowance between $200 – $800.
