Comment on Why do books have typos? by Marc Whelchel

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 14:17:47 +0000

Maddening! I can empathize. After countless edits and sets of eyes poring over my manuscript, I didn't notice this gem until the print version: "A grisly scene was playing on repeat mode between my eardrums. In the weeks after Jake’s death, when chaos resigned, it was a nugget of noise among many." That's right. Chaos didn't reign. It resigned. Straight up quit.

My first novel just came out two weeks ago. And I just got my first real review. I was ecstatic... ...until I got to the last paragraph. The reviewer enjoyed my story. She called it thoughtful and "far beyond your typical vampire fare." But then she said, "With all its positives, the novel does require a thorough edit to correct the typographical and grammatical errors throughout." I thought I would die. Like any paranoid writer who felt wounded, I poured back over my book with a fine tooth comb. And the reviewer was right - I found two misplaced words, a missing set of quotation marks, and a couple of wrongly placed commas. The reviewer made it sound like I bumbled my way through, barely able to write the language(or at least that's how I read it). Much like yours, my novel went through multiple rounds of editing and re-writing and reviewing. I thought we got everything, yet there were the glaring mistakes that I can't help but now notice. Still, knowing I'm not alone in this makes me feel so much better. May be next thyme ill right stuff that dozen look so pourly dun. :-P

Incorrect clue/answer combination in Timothy Parker's Universal Crossword puzzle on 12/03/2016. Clue 17 across asked for a nice property in Monopoly. Answer needed to complete the puzzle was Park Avenue. There is no Park Avenue in Monopoly. It is Park Place.

She (KAREN) is bat $heet crazy. Martin is her married name. She also appeared on Family Feud under her maiden name of Sullivan. Where her crazy is on full display. Much to Richard Dawson's amusement.

I really need tim parker's email to correct him on a very important part of his most recent crossword puzzle for dictionary.com. He said an ingredient of TNT was Nitir, which is a derivitive of potassium nitrate... HOWEVER, after scouring the internet, my associate and I found that it was not in fact potassium nitrate that was an ingredient in TNT BUT in fact, ammonium nitrate. This error is unacceptable, we were almost unable to beat our previous time of 44 minutes let alone continue on in the first place! We have lost all trust in Timothy, and we must have answers. Also, whats all this shit with the GOD DAMN EPEE's?! EVERY. SINGLE. CROSSWORD. WHAT?! Thank you very much for your time, Sincerely, A Woman and Man who simply want some justice. -Praise Be.

This makes me feel a tiny bit better. Like you I edited and cut things out. Restructured sentences and even had someone else read it and I still missed two errors in my book. "You" where it should say "your" and "a" where it should say "the" just totally the result of me typing too fast and pressure from the publisher to submit my galley. MY FAULT totally but I'm kicking myself because didn't catch these simple mistakes before it went to print. It's my first book, I want to be taken serious as a writer. I'm a bit discouraged. : /

I love your article and I have to admit, I read it over twice before I saw your typo! First aid kit is what my eyes saw over and over again! Do we die when we see our own typos in print? We do! But, it happens to all of us!
