Spelling Typos & Other Infernal Errors
I've been getting too much negative criticism about typos of recent. On the one hand it is because more people are reading my books, but it is also because there are a few typos creeping in there. Needless to say, I find it very embarrassing to have an error in my books. I have a fairly loyal cadre of beta readers and I use several tools to find things like incorrect homophone usage, but errors still creep in . Consequently, I'm looking into a professional editor. If there is any economic feasibility (if I can afford it) I'm going to hire one. I've already paid for some professional covers. I suppose this is the next step in getting a first class story out there.
