So, three of you (so far) have sent me an email to let me know about typos. Two of you wondered if it’s possible or a lot of trouble to correct typos after the book is published.
Yes, you should send me lists of typos you find, if you are so inclined. I greatly appreciate it. No, it isn’t much trouble to fix them. I just correct them, load the manuscript, check it quickly, and hit “publish.” About 12 hours later I get a “Your book has been published” notice, which means the corrected version is now the one that’s on Amazon’s site. As far as I know, there’s no interruption in the book’s availability.
In case you’re interested:
Tawen spotted five typos, four unique.
Elaine T spotted six typos, five unique.
Linda S queried thirty-five typos (!), thirty unique. A couple I decided to leave as-is. The others were true typos or I decided to change them as Linda suggested. Yes, despite Linda’s keen eye, both Tawen and Elaine spotted some that Linda missed.
*I* have spotted six more typos no one else seems to have noticed, plus a good dozen repeated words and phrases.
A good handful of these were already corrected in the paperback version, but — amazingly, or at least I am amazed — not in the kindle version. So obviously I fixed them in the paperback version and somehow did not get them fixed in the kindle version. That’s really maddening in a whole different way.
All of these should be corrected now, for values of “now” that include “as soon as KDP puts the changes through.” Tomorrow or in a few days, if you want to, you should be able to go to Amazon, click on “content and devices,” scroll down, find Tarashana, and hit the “updates available” button under the title. That ought to replace the current version you have on your device with the updated version. If there isn’t an “updates available” button available by the end of the week, you might let me know, since I think there ought to be.
