Sloppy editing is a complaint that many romance readers have made before. It appears that misspellings and grammatical mistakes are not limited to romance books. Rosie O’Donnell went public with her disgust of Grand Central Publishing for failing to proof the hardcover jacket of her newest book, Celebrity Detox, which had misspelled her name and gotten the date of her birth wrong as well as the date of her mother’s cancer diagnosis.
Galley Cat blogger says that O’Donnell’s reaction is over the top, but I disagree. O’Donnell’s name is on this book and her reputation, such as it is, on the line.
