Blunder Book Burn Giveaway
Congrats to Malika for winning. Her number, lucky #5 was picked by Random.org!
To celebrate the wonderful world of typos, I've decided to host an autographed proof copy of Dandelions in the Garden giveaway. Part of the publishing process is receiving proof copies for approval. My shelf is filling up with rejected copies due to typos, formatting and page numbering mishaps. I thought about stoking my fire pit and setting these blunders aflame, but that would go against my belief that a book, no matter how flawed, should be burned.
Recently, I added an author's note to Dandelions in the Garden and corrected some errors in the text. Of course, I'm sure some got missed...story of my writing life! Anyhow, a proof arrived and to my frustration, page numbers were included on the title and copyright page. I know, the horror, the horror! However, this has to be fixed, leaving me again with yet another proof to add to my shelf. But, it seems like such a waste! It's up to you to rescue this book from going up in flames!
