I’ve been wading through the error report form, and wanted to just do a quick heads up. When reporting typos, please, please, please make certain you include the title of the book. I have written (and published) over 50 books now, and it becomes very interesting if you forget the title of the book. (So far, I’ve gotten lucky with minimal opening and closing, but part of that was only due to having reread one of those books recently.)
Also, while I know some of you can’t stand regionalisms and different dialects used in the US, reporting them as errors isn’t going to get me to change them. (Dropped to bes are done on purpose, along with some other dropped words, especially for books taking place in the upper eastern seaboard.)
I get you mean well but it’s been an adventure removing the error reports that aren’t actually errors and the reporter just doesn’t like how I wrote the line. I am not going to be showcasing any examples because OBVIOUSLY that’s not cool, but yeah. A reminder that people have different dialects, especially in a country as large as the United States. English is not a static language.
For those of you who have limited the typo report tool on the site to actual typos… you are the BEST. Thank you! (Now I can just wish it took less time to correct, compile, and prep for uploads.)
P.S.: Thank you so much for using my website and NOT Amazon’s wretched little tool of Author Sanity Slaying. That is SO very appreciated.
