Friday Funnies: Mistakes . . .

Hello, Posse!

I hope you have had a wonderful week and have great things planned for the weekend. I did have some plans for tomorrow, but we are postponing everything for two weeks. Poor P.R. has been feeling under the weather the last few days, so we are taking precautions and staying in for a few weeks and not doing anything unnecessary.

I haven't been feeling 100% either, but that is because I have been working on 3-4 hours sleep a night for more than a week. I can usually do that for a week, no problems, but more than that and I start getting run down. I did finally sleep in today and feel better, but I think I need to do that a few more nights to really feel back to myself.

The good news is, I have gotten a LOT accomplished. The books in the Into the West Saga Serial are all in the same formatting program. All of the books it the serial have to same set up for the interiors. I am almost finished with all the updated covers so they all have the same logos and contact information. And I just have a few more covers to layout for the hardcover versions and I will be all done updating the collection.

It is a good thing I decided to do this. I have always been very honest that when I started doing this serial I knew zero, zip, zilch, nada about how to self-publish books. It has been a learn as you go experience. I have made mistakes along the way . . . many in fact.

One such mistake, I just found as I was updating the covers for the serial. I'm not going to mention what it is at this time (and it was s doozy), because I am considering making it a contest. It might be fun to have people who have the paperback books look them over and see if they can spot the mistake and whoever finds it, gets a free copy of the updated book cover.

Honestly, I am so shocked no one over the years has ever written to me about it. I get messages pretty quick if I miss a typo, so the fact that this mistake has slipped by for years just amuses the heck out of me. It is corrected now, but if you have any of the paperbacks versions of the first few books, you just might have your own copy of my "blooper".

Because of this mistake, I thought it would be a fun time to share some famous bloopers. It makes me feel better watching these highly successful people making their own mistakes, we all make them after all. It just shows that making mistakes does not mean you can't still be very successful in your field. Check out the videos below to watch some of my favorites.

Keep watching my social media for all the great things We have planned to come out between now and Christmas.

Have a great weekend, Posse!
