On Finding a Mistake in Newly Published Book

Nothing like having a reviewer burst your euphoria about having a new book out by letting you know about an error on one of the pages. Actually I appreciated her doing that.

Ironically, I got the message on my Blackberry while I was in Tampa at the WOW conference. My editor was there too and I told him. What he's decided to do is correct the error and issue a second edition. By the way, the conference was terrific.

I have copies of the "first edition" of Judgment Fire with the mistake and I am offering them to anyone who would like a copy for the $10 price and $2.50 for shipping along with a copy of the first book in the series, Deadly Omen, both autographed of course. Who knows, it may become a collector's copy. Anyway, if your interested, email me at mmeredith@ocsnet.net and tell me you'd like to order the book and I'll send you my address.

Next week I'm leaving for Anchorage to attend Bouchercon. I'm staying over a few days to participate in the Authors to the Bush program. I'm not sure where I'm going, but I'll certainly have plenty to write about when I get back.
