OCD or what?
« on: December 07, 2017, 03:13:49 PM »
Just after I uploaded and then had the KDP, D2D and CS files approved I was ready to publish. Then I saw the dratted semicolon. Tucked away where it wouldn't be noticed. It was "...we;re..." I knew I'd lose sleep. So I fixed it and re-uploaded all three places. Now to wait some more.

Not OCD, but ACD--Author Carelessness Discrepancy. I think we've all got it to some degree.

Bravo to you, Al, for taking care of bidniz.

the dratted ';' is a pain because the spellcheckers don't pick it up 'EVER' where it's been incorrectly substituted by fat fingers. They shouldn't put the darned thing next to the '  The only way to find it is to do a book wide search on ';' and check EVERY SINGLE INSTANCE. Who has a lifetime to do that?
