I have to laugh at myself sometimes. Remember that fuss I made about CreateSpace altering my barcode on ‘Dear Monday…’ a few weeks back? Well, today the universe just tapped me on the shoulder and said, ‘Uh, Kevin…?’
Here I am copying and pasting text to Wattpad, when I discover that the next page after May 31 in the PDF I’m working from—the same PDF used to print the book—is July, not June. A quick check of the InDesign book file reveals that I somehow reversed June and July without noticing. The page numbers are actually correct for both chapters—but the chapters themselves are out of order.
Fortunately, the printed copies I have—the ones I originally ordered, plus the otherwise corrected copies CreateSpace sent me—are the only copies affected. And I have already fixed the problem and uploaded the new file, so any copies purchased through CreateSpace or Amazon will be the way they are supposed to be.
In the meantime, I’m going to be optimistic and consider these ‘misprinted’ copies collectors’ items…
