I love a really glaring Hexenbiest of an error

Hello, this is your Hexenbiest calling!

Hello, this is your Hexenbiest calling!

The other day I found someone had read a copy of a book I wrote a few years ago, The Extra Man (Book 3, set at Easter).  They’d given it 5 stars, which amazed me. So I went, with a bit of a spring in my step, to the stack of books to be mailed out to the December giveaway winners and . . . I was missing a book!

I had accidentally mailed a winner an old proof copy that was riddled with errors.  Yes, sad but true. And since I don’t know who got the bad book, and Goodreads doesn’t allow authors to contact winners  . . . .

Proof Copy?!” screamed I. “Holy Frack! That’s going to make for a bad review!”

How on earth had I missed that? Moi! I cursed; I stomped my feet; I thought about tearing my hair out (but alas, I have really super hair). In short, I flew into a rage.

Then I laughed.  Really, did it matter that much?  No one who’d won a book had posted a review yet. If I ever they did, I thought, I’d just comment that I accidentally sent a proof copy. But I’m not crying over spilled milk at this point.

All I can say is what Fling recently pointed up (via a text from a great distance):

Tempest + Teapot = Typical Indra

so true!

For anyone that cares, I decide to make the first 3 books of my old series free to download through January (ePub format) for Goodreads.com readers as a semi-atonement to whomever  I gipped out there. These books can be read as stand alones, so if you want to read Book 3 first, or only, no matter.

  1. Well what a gracious gift!!! If you ever send me an edit copy just e-mail me I’ll send it back. But I can’t spell to save my life so I wouldn’t notice. I am a grammer hawk but I quietly correct in my head!!!
