Here's something I don't get:
My third book, Baby City, was professionally edited for typos and grammar issues. However, more than any other book, I have gotten nonstop comments about how many typos there are in this book.
One reader commented that he lowered his rating of the book from 5 to 4 because of how many typos there where. He was kind enough to send me those typos. There were five. Out of 80,000 words.
So I fixed all of those typos, yet I still get complaints. See this review I recently received:
"just could not get past the lack of editing. If I could print this out, I would take a red Sharpie to it."
I don't get it. Even the person who read the book for audiobook said she didn't see many typos. Where are these typos that are upsetting people so much???? I'm sure there are a couple that got missed, but no more than in my other books, which nobody has complained about.
Furthermore, I have seen other books that were littered with typos. There were literally typos on every single page. Yet they had dozens of reviews without one mention of the copious typos. I really just don't get it.
