So…what, exactly, happened?
Well, basically, when I received the final proof copy of Thereafter
on April 28th (for a May 1st release date) from the publisher (Eternal Press, a division of Damnation Books), it was riddled with errors. In addition, the publisher had made quite a few substantial changes to the voice/tone/style of my writing, changes that were never discussed with me and certainly not approved by me.
In short: The final/publisher's version of Thereafter
make me sound like an illiterate git.
Every book has a few errors. That’s just life. However, Thereafter
has 194 errors and 84 erroneous changes
. Let me repeat that: THEREAFTER
HAS TWO HUNDRED AND SIXTY THINGS WRONG WITH IT…in a 252 page book.
164 of these errors are formatting errors.
