Proofreading for Pleasure?

It's always nice when a project I am proofreading turns out to be a book I would be very likely to read even without being paid for it.

In this case the book is a novel entitled One More River by Mary Glickman, published by Open Road Integrated Media.

It is not even listed at Amazon yet, but the author's previous novel, Home in the Morning, can be found at Amazon's Mary Glickman page. I suspect that I will be purchasing a copy, most likely of the Kindle edition, in the near future. (Unless the publisher would like to send me the paperback, of course.) In both novels Glickman writes about Jews in the American South. One More River tells the tale of Mickey Moe Levy, and forebears, from the early 20th twentieth century to the Vietnam War era.

I won't say much here because I really want to get back to work on it. I mean, I love beating deadlines but I also really want to know what's going to happen next...

Later!

[Update, October 6: One More River is now available for pre-order at Amazon (click on image below) or at Open Road.]

The way that Glickman desscribed the scenery of the South is enamoring. Confused this novel with the 1934 film that was an adaptation of John Glasworthy's novel of the same title. Anyway, it is also my dream to proofread a book that I truly enjoyed devouring because it appeals to my literary taste, rather than to my fiscal need. - Layce, working in copy editing and proofreading.
