You Know What Really Grinds My Gears?

straight from tumblr

Typos. Typos, typos, typos. I have been reading ebooks almost exclusively because I am poor. Also, I have gotten used to getting my books instantly when I buy them.

Anyway. I have found ridiculous┬átypos in almost every single one of the ebooks I have read recently, and it is making me angry. Do these authors just get so excited that they finished their books that they can’t help but publish them before the final edits? That’s what it seems like to me. This has happened so often that I have just started assuming the worst when I start a new ebook.

And that isn’t cool.

So, to all of you authors out there that think you are ready to publish your ebook: take another look.

However, it is worth mentioning that quite a few of these ebooks were actually free downloads. But, I think that authors should still have enough pride in what they do to give it a final look-through.

But, I also want to thank authors for making their ebooks free for poor girls like me.

I’m A Good Wife… Except To My Husband.

For Valentine’s day, I got my husband Assassin’s Creed III for the PS3. I gave it to him a couple days early because I feel like I have had it forever, and I just couldn’t wait to give it to him! I know I scored major points in the wife department, but now my author husband is spending a lot of time playing this game! Haha. I think I may have side-tracked him from his writing goals, at least for a little while. The one that is the most angry is my sister– she is anxiously awaiting his next book!

But, my husband is happy, and I know that he will start writing/editing again… as soon as he beats the game!

What did you give/receive for Valentine’s Day?

Chris got me a beautiful Open Heart key necklace– I absolutely adore it! I guess we both did pretty well this Valentine’s Day!
