    Ah, gotcha....still odd he ignored edits. I am assuming he requested the edits and they weren't unsolicited. It's usually best to offer editing assistance before actually providing any service, as unsolicited edits are usually not taken seriously. Never give it away! Decent editing commands a price.

    That's not at all what I said. I offered to James to edit his manuscript, since the first version of the PDF was rife with errors. He accepted my offer. My only "payment" is my name in the credits as a proofer/editor. (This was per my request. I mentioned that, if he was so inclined, a dead tree version of the completed project wouldn't be turned away.)

    So yes, I did offer the assistance and yes it was accepted. I gave him a few pages, he said he'd integrate them. I wrote a few days later saying I had another chapter that needed some looking over, and was he ready? I got no reply that he was. Ce la vie.
