The winning typo of Book Three (I hope)

Typos: the bane and torment of the self publishers. Book Three has now gone through, multiple edits by me, plus through two test readers, a professional editor, one final proofreader who hadn’t seen any of it before and still the on one creeps through.

This week I think I’ve found the winning typo for book three (at least I hope I have). There’s a line where a character is drifting off to sleep and it is supposed to read ‘his eyes flickered shut’ except the U from shut was an I.

Whoops. That character might want to see a doctor about that!

  1. Considering all the probable awesome battles happening around him, I wouldn’t be surprised he’s indeed flickering the I instead of the U. 🙂

    Will we have a thread for the typo that does make the final release? If any make it that are as epic as that one then while there may be a bit of embarrassment on your behalf it will be funny as a word beginning with f and involving your rogue u
