Team Typo

 
Anytime I spot a typo or other kind of error in a book, I wish there was someone I could tell! Do you feel the same way? If you spot one in my book, I’d love to hear about it.

Don’t be afraid you might be wrong. If it turns out that the the word or sentence you submitted is not a typo or error, I’ll tell you why.

And don’t be afraid of hurting my feelings. You won’t. When writers write, sound-alike words often land on the page and these mistakes have to be caught after-the-fact. Even if something is correct, if it trips enough readers up, I may find it worth revising.

As with the page for posting other comments and questions, here’s how this works:

Name: Enter your first name only (internet safety first!)

Email: Your email address won’t appear with your comment — it’s just to make sure you’re a real person, not a spambot — but check with a parent first in case they have any concerns about you doing this. I will never use it to automatically send you things from this site. (To get my emails, you must subscribe; see “Sign Up for Email Updates” in the sidebar.)

Comment/Question: Write the typo in the box exactly as it appears in the book, and include something to help me locate it — like a few words that appear right before and after the mistake.

Submit: When you are finished, click the “Submit” button. The typo you found will display after it has been reviewed by me. Thanks for sharing it with me!

Enter your comment or question in the box below.

Required fields are marked with an asterisk (*).

Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts!
