Typos are a fact of life. Typos wind up in textbooks, in bestsellers, in classy marquees, and yes, even in my beloved Vessel. I once scoffed at all the writing and publishing advice columns I follow, but it's true: no matter how many times you read it, no matter how much you pay for editing, and no matter how many other people kindly--and awesomely--proofread for you, a 310 page chunk of text will go to print with typos in it.
|Not even my laser eyes could detect every typo.|
And so I turn to you, dear readers. If you happen upon an unclaimed typo in Vessel (Book I: The Advent)*, then I salute you! Here's what you do:
1. Check the comments to this blog post to see if the typo has been listed by another reader.
2. If the typo hasn't been listed, congrats! Book II is yours. Leave a comment about the typo below to claim it.
3. Email your mailing address, along with a note regarding the typo, to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
4. Await your copy of Book II! (pub date tba)
*does not apply to the pre-publication review copies, as many of its typos were corrected for the first edition.
*also does not apply to any edition of the e-book (just too damn many editions in the beginning to keep track of).
