Making it Right

December 9, 2011 Leave a comment

I started working on the fourth book in my Voidhawk series earlier this week. It’s going to follow the adventures of three of the Voidhawk’s crew, Login, Bekka, and Bailynn. It’s been a while since I’ve worked with those characters, so I needed a refresher of a few specific events. That continuity check sent me back to Voidhawk – The Elder Race and I quickly discovered I screwed up.

The screw up was in grabbing the wrong version of the file when I put it on Amazon. Wrong version as in unedited. I was so upset by this I immediately scrolled back to the beginning and went to work on it. A week later I’m happy to say it’s now been revised and corrected. I’ve uploaded the new and improved version to Amazon, Smashwords, and Barnes and Noble. If you’ve bought it in the past and were bothered by this, feel free to delete yours and re-download it. If that doesn’t clear it up contact me directly and I’ll send you the latest and greatest revision of it.

Little mistakes slip through multiple editing processes. They bug me but I can live with those. Mistakes like this are worse than embarrassing. I care about the quality of my books and the experience readers can get out of them. If it were me reading it, I’d have gotten disgusted and given up – yes, the first chapter or two really were that bad, in my opinion. Not anymore though!

Reading through it I was caught up and reminded of how well fleshed out the crew was in this second book. I’m biased, but I felt myself pulled along with some emotional scenes (both tragic and passionate). I’m proud once again of the finished product. Now back to waiting for new cover art from Willsin Rowe for it!
