About The Mistakes In The Book…

**Picture of baby in hopes it helps you not to hate me…**

Hey you,

I am writing this from the floor of my bathroom, because I don’t want to stir my husband from his slumber, (lucky bastard). Sleep, what even is sleep?

Anyway, I think we can all agree, that grammar and punctuation have never been my specialty. If you take a look at my blog posts, it won’t be long before you spot a stray comma or a misspelled word.  I am a story-teller, that does not make me a “writer”, clearly.

Soooo, when it was brought to my attention that there were a few mistakes in my book, I cringed.  Not because I paid someone to catch them – because obviously mistakes happen- but I cringed because the mother-freakin’ thing is already published.

Yesterday, I went in and fixed the changes, nothing major. A few misspelled words.  After this, I have to resubmit to both KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing) AND Createspace (Paperback). Once I do this, it makes my paperback “unavailable” while they re-review these files for publishing, (sigh). So while they are generous enough to make it appear as those my book is flying off the shelves at such a rapid pace, that they can’t keep up with the demand and are “sold out”, the truth is — I’m just a big, fat, knucklehead who sucks at typing words. Lol.

I only discovered that this is why my book was “out of stock”, tonight. Ask me how I figured it out…

I learned it after resubmitting my mother friggin’ files AGAIN, after it was brought to my attention that some of my characters have multiple names. Example: Katie vs Sarah and Tom vs Blake vs Brandon.

I have corrected these errors, and resubmitted the files on both websites AGAIN.

So what does this mean? Well, a couple of things. First, it means my paperback will be “Temporarily Out Of Stock” for the next few hours while they review it.  Second, this means the paperback and eBook will not be linked on Amazon for a few days, so you have to search them separately.

Last, an most importantly, this means that all of you that have purchased the paperback up until this point (a few hundred of you) will have Katie called Sarah once, and Brandon called Blake twice.

Now we can look at this one of two ways. One, you can be super-pissed that you spent money on a book in which the author can’t even get the characters names straight. OR, you can think to yourself, “Dude, how cool is this! Only me and a few other people in the whole world have the limited addition “Tiffany is An Idiot” version of this book! Sweet!”

I am praying you choose number two, however, if you are angry – understandably – I will gladly buy the book from you and donate it somewhere. No questions asked, no hard feelings.

With that being said, the updated book should be available tomorrow night in paperback, if not sooner.  You can still purchase it while it is out of stock, it will just ship a couple of hours later.

I’m sorry. I love you, and thank you for sticking by me while I try to figure out what the hell I’m doing.

  2. Seriously! You are so funny and so honest it’s so refreshing I have only been a member of the group for maybe 2 weeks and already feel well not so alone. The comradarie of the people in the group is simply amazing! You could do no wrong. I haven’t ordered the book yet but I’m going to only I won’t have the one warts and all 😐.. God bless you Tiffany for your honesty and kindness that has brought so many good supportive people together 💝

  3. We probably all devoured the blogs so fast that nobody cared to pay attention to the names! The internet is just free editors. I love that you submitted the corrections despite it backing things up. I don’t think the majority of people even care though because the book message is so good and those errors don’t detract from that overall message. Will you be writing more books? Please do!!!!

  5. I love that I get a limited edition!! No worries at all! I think this is pretty common. A friend of mine just published her book as well and I bought it the same day I bought yours. She also had to deal with some issues like this. I can’t wait to read the book!

  7. I’m super happy with my “mistakes” copy. You are human… just like the rest of us. You wanted your story out, not to win some award for most words and sentences not mispelled or any mistakes made. I’m glad I got the copy with mistakes in it!!

  8. I read all the time. Almost every hardcover book and (especially) ebooks have mistakes in them. You are worrying for nothing. I do the same thing. All your followers love you for you – not for your grammatical skills. (Just don’t say “I seen.” I hate that! Jk!)

  12. Tiffany, don’t be hard on yourself! I am super pumped to have this “limited edition” of your book that not many others will have 🙂 it is real and raw, you’ve told us that from the start. So I don’t think a few errors is a big deal at all, that’s life! You’re raising children, taking care of your family, you have a husband, you fight to stay clean, and so many other little things-and that is a lot of work. You also wrote a freaking BOOK while doing all of this. You’re amazing! And i feel lucky to have one of the rare copies.

    I just tuned in and am already a fan. I’m not an addict or alcoholic, but I have so many other issues, as do most, that you just make the day better. You make things okay with your personality.
    I am a realist and you are about as real as they come.
    Your qualities way outshine any mistakes and your knowledgeable about what’s going on in the publishing/marketing world.
    Plan to buy soon.

  17. Do you know how many books I’ve read from major publishing houses and world-famous authors that have typos and mistakes in them? We’re talking people who had up to three editors read their books, plus beta readers, plus their agents who missed something before the book made it to print. You published a freaking book! That’s something to be proud of no matter what! And, from one writer (who has yet to publish a book) to another, this post is so appreciated. We all make mistakes, and when someone can just be real about it and own it, that reminds us all to take ourselves a little less seriously. Thanks so much for sharing!

  18. You know more about book publishing than me… so you’ve got that going for you…

    Plus, you know you’ve learned a lot. Because mistakes help us grow.

    Frankly, there are probably 3 people in the entire world who care about these mistakes, and of course they are most vocal about it.

    It’ll be a great read NO MATTER WHAT.

    You got this!
