And Bad Mistakes. I’ve Made a Few.

I had lunch with an old friend of mine, who bought the eBook version of “Suicide By Everest” and gave me a list of spelling errors and grammar issues that he had found. (Thanks Troy W.!). I’ve since gone into the KDP author portal and updated the novel.  Although I hope that I’ve now caught all the errors, I’m sure that readers will continue to find issues.  One of the benefits of publishing on KDP is how easy it is to fix and update.  As new errors are found, I will update this Blog entry.  —Scott
