Earlier I wrote about the bad experience I had buying 2 ebooks from you. Now I’m sorry to say but the reading experience for one of them has been less than wonderful and it’s not due to the author’s voice or style. It’s due to your poor editing.
I was reading the first book on my IPAQ and all of a sudden — the font totally changed. Different size, different style and for no apparent reason. Then it happened two more times.
At first I thought maybe there was a blip during the file transfer so I pulled the file up on my pc and discovered that it was even worse there. Not only did the font change but the lines didn’t wrap and I had to scroll waaaaaaaaaaaay across the screen to read the entire lines.
Then I began to notice the editing errors. “Red made it to a tree and almost over when he lifted his leg.” Did the dog almost fall over, tip over, sprawl over, crash over, jitterbug over? What?
Then Kat is described as knowing in her got that something was wrong. I’ve been a health care professional for over 19 years and I never knew I had a got. I wonder what kind of doctor specializes in the human got?
I know that this author didn’t submit her MS with these errors in it and please note authors that I am in no way blaming her for any of this. I lay the blame squarely on Triskelion.
I’ve got one more contest book from your publishing house to read and I hope that your batting average improves because right now it’s 0 for 3.
