I'd been spending a lot of time on OOA and COA, as well as a lot of day job time, but am now back to more work on Volume IV.
As I go through doing new writing and trying to keep continuity straight, I am finding numerous errors and typos still existing in Books 1, 2 and 3.
Fixing these errors is a huge pain because that means I have to republish them and that's always a tricky process.
For example, back in April I did updates/fixes to Book II. When I redid the paperback version, the new versions formatting was different than the previous paperback's format. This changed the number of pages, shrunk the book by around 10 pages (I think the problem was that even pages all got an extra line per page...and for paperbacks where every chapter should start on an odd page, that can shift a lot of stuff around over time in terms of blank even pages etc.)
Anyway, that change to size, mean the cover, that had been good for 18 months was suddenly too big, so the republished failed, and I didn't notice it. My real bad. When I did notice it, it took me about 5 days of tweaking the cover to get it right (you think you have it right, but have to submit and wait 24 hours to get approval, and it kept getting rejected---it/they is VERY picky)
In the case of e-books, there are also potential issues, like the original problem I had with Book III and the light fonts, and also, existing users don't automatically get the changes, they have to request the latest version because new versions wipe out notes and highlights.
So anyway, I don't want to do updates that often.
But, there are now getting to be enough that I am going to have to republish at least book iii sometime before the release of book iv and/or the others.
So, if you have noticed outstanding typos/errors/bugs let me know by replying to this topic.
There are some obvious typo's like missing quotes, but also things like saying the bergrisi was attacking the southern wall, when it was attacking the northern wall...etc.
