Really? Did I really just read that right? Did I really write that?
Yes. Yes, I did.
I was skimming through The First Night (Book One) looking for a few of my favorite lines to add to its listing on Shelfari… and there it was, staring me right in the face, mocking me through my computer screen. I couldn’t believe it. But wait! This is the word document. Maybe I fixed it when I converted it to epub…?
“Fire in the whole!” she screamed.
I’m not an idiot. I know the difference between “whole” and “hole”. I know I don’t “fall in a whole” and I don’t eat “hole wheat bread.” I don’t even eat “whole wheat bread.” I know it’s better for me, but it tastes like cardboard.
It makes me wonder: what other obvious typos have I missed? How many times did I proofread and edit and proofread and edit, only to find this elementary error while skimming?
I apologize. I’m a bit of a perfectionist, especially when it comes to my writing. I’ve never met a writer who isn’t and I don’t think I want to. But the beauty of an ebook is that this can be fixed. I can simply correct my error(s) and re-upload the book. This will be done when I upload Book Three of The First… which will be soon.
