Stuff Just Happens

I don’t think a perfect publishing manuscript exists. I remember when we published my book, One Last Cast: . Given that I was both author and publisher, I determined that the book would be error-free. As a result, the manuscript was the most copyedited book we have published.

When One Last Cast arrived from the printer, my wife and I decided to read one of the stories each night before retiring. To my horror, we found a glaring error during the first night’s reading.

I trust that most book readers have found mistakes in almost every book they’ve read. I’ve wondered how a big five publisher could print a book with multiple errors. The book must have been edited by experienced copyeditors more than just once.

Now, after more than 40 years of publishing books, I don’t think it’s possible to publish an error-free book.

There are always error magnet readers whose lives are complete when they find a mistake in a printed book.

I love error magnets when they find a mistake in one of our books and let us know about it.

Why don’t error magnets become copyeditors? Then less stuff would happen.

Well maybe.

Probably just different stuff.
