The Art of Story

Smashwords Listings

This morning I did my usual scan of new books just posted on Smashwords.  Aarugh!  I am astounded at the number of misspelled words in the book descriptions that appear in the listing.  I ask: Why would I download a book or more so, why would I BUY a book from an author doesn’t care or doesn’t notice.

When I’ve written my own descriptions, misspellings do creep in.  But please, proof read closely — word for word.  A more common problem I see is the correctly spelled wrong word.  Mark Coker hammers at this in his books.  And yet it continues.
