No Matter What…

No matter how carefully, it seems, that I double or triple check a book, there will always be some typos that creep into the final copy. Unicorn Hunt is no exception to that rule.

For those that follow me on Facebook, it won’t come as a surprise that I have published my first book. Unicorn Hunt is a retro-80s Choose Your Own Adventure book. This means that you’re supposed to start at page 1, read until you come to a choice, then pick another page depending on how you want to continue the story.

As you can imagine, the difficulty with writing one of these comes in making sure that the page numbers line up correctly. Unfortunately, despite my best efforts, a few errors remained.

Since publication, I have discovered 4 such errors, listed below:

  • Page 27: The directions should send you to page 49.
  • Page 37: The directions should send you to page 19.
  • Page 67: The first choice should point to page 38, the second to page 49.

As of today (6/8/2017), I have sent a corrected copy to CreateSpace, however there is a review process and corrected copies won’t be available for at least a day and a half.

I’m very sorry for confusion these errors caused. I didn’t do this on purpose. I double checked the book to ensure that this did not happen, however I was obviously not thorough enough. As I plan to publish at least one more CYOA-style book, this has been a valuable learning experience for me and I will not repeat the same mistake in the future.
