Copy editing problem #1 through forever

You see this little cut and paste below…this is why I can’t copy edit. I know no one should edit their own work and I have a fab editor but a tiny budget so the proofreading I did and re-did myself, a friend helped here and there and I listened to the books too (hysterical sex scenes in a monotone robot voice…complete mood killer btw), Sadly, as most will know by now I didn’t get all the damn errors.

And now I have had over 7000 books downloaded its being flagged (and rightly) so I’m gathering pennies and hoping to get them sorted soon. In the mean time I am sorry and I really did try and get them all but this looks fine to me!!!
