We had to peel the female off the ceiling this morning. She is still breathing fire. Frankly, it’s a little disconcerting.
1: We have a typo form on the website. Please use it. We have removed the option to email in kindle files because people were just submitting singular errors. Those errors get forgotten about. It means the typo doesn’t get fixed, and nobody is happy.
2: Please do not use Big Brother Amazon to report typos. Amazon doesn’t permit the author to retain creative control of their book. They do not give notice when errors have been submitted, and they can and do flag books for quality issues without notifying the author. Sometimes, this ‘flag’ is flat-out removing the books from sale.
Please do not use this horrible form.
3: The female is severely loyal to her staff. If you say shit about her staff, she will get the knives out and battle to the death for them. Shut your pie holes about her staff. You can totally tell them how awesome they are. But that’s the only commentary about her staff that is welcome at any time.
You can say all the bad shit you want about the female, but she will absolutely correct you if you’re saying stupid shit that’s incorrect. (Example… that the female doesn’t care about typos. That’s bullshit. She does. She just does NOT want to lose creative control to some reader she does not know from Adam or Eve.) She fixes typos often.
She has a habit of re-reading her own books and making small corrections, usually on a once a month basis. If she’s reading at the computer when she finds a typo in one of her books, she fixes it immediately.
Please use the typo form and not Big Brother Amazon. The female is really tired of being penalized by a vendor because a reader, who thinks they’re being helpful, tattles to the vendor, who should not have any creative control over an author’s original works. Yet Amazon is forcing authors to make corrections based on the recommendations of unknown and unqualified entities.
This is not okay.
Please use the typo report form. It’s new. It has a spot for your name and email address. If you are noticed to provide really good typo feedback, you may one day find yourself being emailed with an NDA and an invitation to beta proofread. (Note: you must have a facebook account to beta proofread for the female. She uses a chat function there to communicate with the beta proofreaders.)
The female is now going to go rage somewhere else for a while. And possibly stab a piece of cloth several thousand times today so she’s not tempted to go for actual knives.
This is the project she is currently working on. It’s… purple.
