'No Write To Die' Re-edited...

I have just re-edited 'No Write To Die' and relaunched it on Amazon as a 2nd Edition. The reason for this is, as a writer, I rely on feedback and reviews from my readers. I have had a few reviews commenting on the grammatical errors and typos within the book. I wholeheartedly hold my hands up to this. Originally when the book was ready to publish. My proofreader advised me that it wasn't ready, she had only skimmed over it and needed to thoroughly go through it again. I ignored her and went ahead and published. A lesson well learnt, so for that I apologise. The majority of comments that I have received have not been critical of the story or plot or characters, but solely on the errors contained within. Personally as a writer, I get lost in what I am doing. I enter a zone where all I do is pound away at the keyboard like a man possessed. The typos and grammatical mistakes are obviously evident. I then pass it over to my proofreader, (bless her) and say "Sort this out".
Fellow scribes can probably identify with this process, hey we can't all be perfect.
So to sum up, I admit my mistakes, I thank my readers for the justified criticism and hopefully, I have learnt a valuable lesson.

  1. Good for you. I would be dead as a writer without my editor. They are so valuable.

    1. Thanks Peggy
      We live and learn, like I said it was my fault and not my proofie bless her.
      Lesson learned.

  2. Ditto from Peggy. Even when I go over my book and correct some errors, after my editor does her job, there are a lot more I would've not seen.

    Best of luck on your new release.

    1. Hi Jeanette
      many thanks for your comments, I am glad it is not only me lol. I have no problem holding my hands up. Hopefully with books 2 and 3, I have learned my lesson
