Oops

Oh no! I was just flicking casually through one of my author copies of Over You (it is very nice to flick casually through one's own book, I must say)...and on the very first line I read, I spotted a typo. Aaaarrrgh.
It's in the Acknowledgements page, so pretty much the first page you come to. Bollocks.
Free signed copy to the first person who can tell me what it is....

Oh no! Is it too late to change it then????

Caroline said...

did you spell 'acknowledgements' wrong? or someone's name?

It's a nightmare. No matter how many eyes and how many times you read the buggers, mistakes still appear.

Debs said...

Oow what a pain. I don't suppose it was 'I', as in 'I would like to thank...'

I can't wait to read it anyway, typo included.

Can you still change it?

wontletlifedefineme said...

Oh and for the guessing bit, the typo's in the name of husband/children/relative?

Captain Black said...

Did you accidentally make an anagram out of the title?

Lucy Diamond said...

Girl - yes, too late, all the books are printed now. *sigh*

Caroline - no (luckily) and no (luckily) although I have done the latter in a children's book - mortifying.
Never mind...

Debs - you're not far off actually - the typo is in the 'I would like to thank...' sentence but not that bit. My eye is drawn to the mistake now every time I look at it! (must stop looking at it.)

Won'tLetLife - no, too late. And no, thankfully it's not a crucial name!

Calistro said...

Did you spell any of the following incorrectly:

agent
editor
publishers

or the name of any of them?

Dumdad said...

"I wood lick to thanc me pooblishar, aggent and editer without who(m) the buk wood never hav bin posible."

Lucy Diamond said...

Captain Black - the title is spelled correctly, thank God!

Calistro - no, luckily! (I'm starting to realise it could have been so much worse, am actually almost grateful now for the unimportance of the typo!)

Dumdad - lol! Next time I might just write the whole book that way, then any typos will look deliberate. Genius!

Bear said...

It isn't 'I would like too thank', is it?

Lucy Diamond said...

Hi bear - nope, not that...

I think you are all just going to have to buy the book to find out, you know! :)

L-Plate Author said...

It isn't I would like to spank is it....xx

Lucy Diamond said...

Ha ha! No. You're all going to be so disappointed with what a boring typo it is now...

Single Mother on the Verge said...

aghhhhhhhhhhhh noooooooooooooooooooo

Can you put stickers over every typo in every copy.... sit on the floor in every bookshop and warehouse?

I'll skip that page. Pretend it never happened

Lucy Diamond said...

SMoV - yes, please do. Skip away, nothing to see there!

pierre l said...

My copy arrived today. I know what I'll be doing this weekend.

Lucy Diamond said...

Pierre - hooray! Hope you like it. Thank you so much for buying it. Mwah.
