Our long national nightmare is over! The mostly typo-free edition of The Wild Roses is now published in both paperback and Kindle. ("Mostly" because I believe in truth in advertising. I'm sure I might have missed some. Just not 60.) O huzzah!
You can now feel safe that when you're reading the book, a random asterisk won't just happen * to pop up in the middle of a sentence. Or in a chapter about Charlotte Le Renaud, she won't be referred to in one sentence as Gabrielle Parnasse.
This all reminds me of a great Bob & Ray sketch, where Ray is being interviewed after having written a history of the United States, and the book turns out to be riddled with glaring errors. (I forget what they were specifically, but they were massive. Like calling Lincoln our third president.) Bob finally asks Ray how he can justify charging $75 for a book with so many mistakes. "Well," Ray finally says, "It's beautifully bound."
I'll have little tale about my communication with the proofreader about this upcoming. All I'll say for now is that the book is once again safe for purchasing here.
For those entering this process late in the game, The Wild Roses is a story in the spirit of The Three Musketeers
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
