Steampunk Spotlight: Proofreading Error!!

Today’s Steampunk Spotligt shines on a huge proofreading error in the anthology Caught in the Cogs: An Eclectic Collection. Or perhaps I should say ON the book, as the mistake is on the cover. On the spine, actually.


It never ceases to amaze me that no matter how many times someting is edited and proofread…someting is always missed. This time, one of those overlooked mistakes was on the cover, and I’m simply mortified! Especially since the first printing was 125 copies. At least it wasn’t 500 copies!

We have about 40 copies of those books left, and a new shipment of corrected books (including a Table of Contents) is on it’s way. The second (corrected) printing are available from right now.

So, we had a choice to either destroy the remaining 40 copies, after the error was caugt, or sell them throug, either at a discount or as a collectible. As environmentalists, we just couldn’t bring ourselves to destroy 40 books. It pains me to just think about it. So we decided to sell them as limited edition collectibles.

But before we do that, I wanted to give my readers a chance to get them at a discounted price, rather than an elevated one. For the rest of this week only, you can buy a copy of Caugt in the Cogs for just $5 + shipping. That’s over 60% off the cover price of $12.95. You will get an author-signed copy of this limited edition print run with the spine spelling error delivered directly to you.

Starting this weekend, the books will sell for $15 as collectible items. Get yours while you can!

  1. So what is the error on the spine?

    • TeeHee! Read the post again and notice the letter missing in lots of words. The way the title is spelled at the end of the post is the way it looks on the spine.
