This is one of those hard posts to write, where I have to try and be myself for a few moments and let all the crazy stop so I can say something rather important.
I appreciate that there are probably a lot of friends and family out there at the moment who have downloaded The Uni Files- The Art of Letting Go and realised with horror that there are a handful of mistakes scattered throughout the manuscript. And bless you all for sitting there and being so polite and not saying anything in a bid to spare my feelings…..but it’s okay I know about them and I am in the process of getting them fixed.
It’s kind of sad really, and even writing this post is making me feel considerably downbeat which is unusual for me. The situation is, and I am going to be very diplomatic here with my phrasing, I spent two years working on something completely new. That new project turned out to be The Art of Letting Go, my little baby. For whatever reasons there may be, and I do believe both parties are to blame The Art of Letting Go has gone out for sale in a form that I am not satisfied with. I know I am to blame for this as much as other people; I was to eager to get it out there, I rushed through re-reads and I was distracted by some very sad family events that caught me completely by surprise.
So really I just wanted to clear the air. I hate the thought of people reading it and wondering if they should tell me – it’s okay I already know – and I just hope that those lovely people who have already read it enjoyed the story and that it made them laugh, or cry, or whatever emotion it brought out of you. And for those of you who want to wait until the corrected version is on Amazon well then I hope you also enjoy it and it makes you laugh and cry.
The good news in this situation is that I have made some decisions going forward about Year Two and in a way this has been quite a liberating learning curve that I have been on. Slowly I am building a team of Beta readers and proof readers (I love you guys) I trust, so Year Two is going to completely kick butt. (More updates on Year two soon).
Happy reading – whichever version you go for!
I’m going to crawl back to my sick bed now…satisfied at the fact that I have cleared the air.
