It was brought to my attention about two weeks ago, that The Lifeblood of Ill-fated Women had some typos and mistakes in it.
This, of course, drives me crazy. As a perfectionist, it makes me fully mental. :)
How does this happen? The book was edited by me several times. Then it was professionally edited. And again read and re-read by me. It was even given to someone to proof after I became fully blind to any typos. At that point, I was sure it was good and clean...but it wasn't.
There are over 103,000 words in that book, and 20 of them are messed up? Does not seem like much. But if the reader has their flow slowed twenty times...that's too much.
So I quickly went to work and fixed the 20 mistakes that were found. And submitted a new clean edition to the publisher. Right now a few first edition books might be in circulation, but the new ones are ready to be sold.
Kindle? They are about a week behind. The new edition should be live on Kindle next week. I will post an update.
I am relieved that the mistakes were found and corrected so quickly. I am sorry if anyone encountered them and it spoiled the reading for them. Please contact me if it did.
Rest assured my future works will have another added layer of scrutiny. I don't want this to happen again. 3-4 typos, I can live with. 20... no.
