Though I am not Canadian, I have lived in Canada for the majority of my school years. This basically means that I have learned the Canadian spelling of most words. However, elementary teachers have always been a little vague on the correct spelling. For example, the word colour. I have been told that it can be spelled both colour and color, both of which will be correct. I prefer to use colour, as well as neighbour over neighbor, etc. My question is, are publishers going to be picky as to the the spelling of those words? Will the spelling even be a deterent to the chances of my book getting published? What if I tried to publish it in the U.S.A? Will they care? *To the moderators, please move this thread if it belongs under publishing instead. I wasn't sure which one to choose.
