My wife called me a very rude word today, and after reading the post, which I've now deleted, I can see that it was well deserved.
A few days ago I wrote an entry about CreateSpace and included what I foolishly believed to be humour. It also embarrassed someone who has been very good to me.
This was absolutely the last thing I intended. Alongside Donna Yates who had kindly proofread two of my novels, Barbara Fisher from MarchHouse books showed me the editing mistakes I had carelessly let slip though in Kongomato. She did not have to do this but did so through kindness and only after I had asked her to.
I can never thank her enough for showing me what I should have spotted in the first place.
Barbara has not complained, she is far too gracious for that; so I would like to say sorry if I accidentally wrote something that upset her. I truly did not mean it and in future will choose my words with more care.
I like to think of myself as a writer. If I'm to become one I will have to do a lot better.
