Typos, Facebook Likes, Book Selling, et al

A dear friend found some typos in the paperback version of Last Stop on Desolation Ridge. As a result, I’ve uploaded revised editions for e-book readers. If you try to buy it on Amazon for the Kindle it may say the book is under review. It’s an automatic process that takes a day or two at the most.

The paperback version is also being updated and as a result it also may not be available for a few days.

Of course, it’s frustrating to an author when someone discovers typos in her/his book. I recognize that I am not to be trusted to edit or proof-read my own writing. Too many self-published writers do not.

But what helps even more is rating the book on Amazon, Barnes & Noble or Goodreads. (Goodreads is a site where people share the books they’re reading and get a chance to rate and review them so their friends can decide what to read. It’s free. If you join “friend” me to see what I’m reading. I write detailed reviews for most of the books I read.

I’m looking forward to seeing how many books I can sell tomorrow at the Tucson Festival of Books (11:45 am to 1:45 pm in the West Authors’ Tent), but even more I’m looking forward to listening to some neat authors including Diana Gabaldon (author of the 7-book Outlander fantasy series), Charles de Link (who many people feel invented urban fantasy) and Kevin Hearne (author of the Iron Druid Chronicles). They’re all speaking on Sunday. Watch this page for my report on what they have to say that might be of interest to people who have or are considering reading their books.
