You always wonder about the meeting where that kind of thing happens. Where the author sees the first copy dummied up.
"What do you think?"
“Wow… yeah… uh… I couldn’t help but notice that the publisher's name is larger than mine… or the title… uh… is that a selling point?”
Also, I don’t want to brag, but I’ve started reading Ultimatum by Richard Rohmer.
Here's something nitpicky, but I have to say it: When the President leaves the White House, he gets on his “navy helicopter.” The President's helicopter is Marine One, which is, you know, operated by the Marines. The helicopter takes him to Dulles Airport, where he gets on Air Force One, a plane the real President tends to keep at Andrews Air Force Base.
I know it’s a novel, and Rohmer can do what he wants, but it takes you out of it a little.
Later he calls the members of OPEC "the OPEC countries" which I remember was one of those trivial redundancies that drove grammar snobs up the walls.
I like the drawing of Air Force One, though.
