Squee, with a side of horror

I got my author's copies for A King's Ransom! Yayyyy!

Fun quiz: How do you turn a writer from this



to this



in five nanoseconds flat?

Answer: Send them an author's copy with the wrong title in the header.



There was an awful moment where "It is a BOOK! A real, live, lovely, bound book with MY WORDS inside!" gave way to "OMGWHAT? Those ARE my words inside, aren't they?!", until I realized that yes, the words are mine. Just the title isn't. So now I'm amused (mostly), and I can get back to my squeeing.

Just as soon as I email my publisher. ;)

Looks like it's wrong on the Amazon "look inside" feature too.

So it is! Alas. Well, I emailed my publisher and they said when the woman who does the paperback formatting gets back from vacation next week, they'll get it fixed. And they're going to send me corrected author's copies, too, which is just gravy. :)
