It’s exciting to write a book, get it published and hand the finished product to someone. It’s humbling when you start to notice the mistakes. I’ve only seen two so far in my book GO. One is some crunched up text, while the other is a bit more problematic.
In one of the latter chapters I tell the story of a former missionary named William Borden. Except that I refer to him as Henry Borden. The story is true and all the facts are correct, but his name is William, not Henry. I’m not sure why, after doing the research and reading about Borden’s life that I never noticed the mistake. He’s long dead, so I don’t think he’ll mind, but the name is wrong.
Isn’t that how life goes? I love this quote from the narrator of one of my favorite movies, A Christmas Story; Sometimes, at the height of our revelries, when our joy is at it’s zenith, when all is most right with the world, the most unthinkable disasters descend upon us.
Thanks to all of you who’ve ordered my book. I’d love to hear your thoughts when you read it!
