It isn’t drastically different from the first edition. Primarily it’s an exercise in clarification, higher production values and the smoothing-off of a few rough edges. The only significant addition has been made at the request of a number of readers who asked for a downloadable compilation of some of our more instructional blog entries. Rather than create a separate document, we’ve aggregated these blog posts and included them as an appendix to the second edition.
For those of you who bought the first edition (just let me say, thank you very much, your patronage is greatly appreciated) we wouldn’t want you to feel cheated, so we’ll be sending you a link to a free copy of the new edition. In fact, we hope to do this for all subsequent editions. So, once you buy The No-Nonsense Proofreading Course, you’ll receive succeeding editions in perpetuity. I’ll be in touch with each of you over the next few days.
As you’ve no doubt noticed, we’ve changed the look of the website to reflect the design characteristics of the new edition. Let us know what you think.
We've also changed address. We're now at www.proofreading-course.com. Don't worry if you've bookmarked us as you should be redirected automatically from the old domain anyway.
Thanks to everyone for their support and all the positive feedback.
Next stop: the third edition!
