Every book I’ve brought out I’ve found an error within minutes despite the hours and hours of proof reading. I remember picking up Manchester The Greatest City, stopping at Leicester Forest services and being horrified with something that was not what it should be. I sat there thinking no one would buy the book and was distraught. Within a week though feedback was so good that I’d forgotten what had irritated me so much.As @Gary James will testify... the days before you receive it are the most exciting and most nervous.....
It arrives and you proudly read it and on page 4 note a spelling mistake or factual error, nothing earth shattering but a slight error and then wait for the first text or email to say "so on page 4......" lol
Bringing out a book ultimately brings immense joy (eventually) and it’s a wonderful experience, especially when it’s your passion. I love reading other writer’s work and can’t wait for this. Looking forward to it immensely.
