I'm having a new contest for the month of June!
We all have found typos or small errors (and sometimes large ones) in our favorite books. Although copy editors are probably the hardest working individuals on Earth, stuff still gets by them. Unfortunately, a doozy of an error not only got past me in my proofing of The Legacy, but by my CE as well. My bad...but your gain.
Here's the contest: I'm giving away a free copy of CJ Lyon's fabulous new debut novel, Lifelines, plus a copy of Stephanie Meyer's Twilight, the beginning of her incredible YA series featuring teenage vampires, to one lucky person who figures out what that error is.
Here's the rules: while there are one or two minor typos in The Legacy, as with most books, let's not waste our time with small potatoes. Let's go right for the big...potatoes. I'm looking for a specific error that occurs five times in the novel. Yep. The same error, five times. I'll give you a hint: it's in German. (That's what happens when you forget to set your spell check for the German language, folks.) If you find it, send an e-mail to me at tjb @ tjbennett . com (no spaces), subject "June Contest" with your answer as to what that error is. Include your e-mail address to contact you in the event you win, and on July 5, 2008, I'll draw a winning name at random from all correct entries. I'll announce the winner on my blog and e-mail him or her as well. The winner will have one week to respond with an address to where I can send their prize. If I don't hear from the winner by then, I'll select an alternate winning entry.
That's it! Good luck and have fun hunting for the answer in my book.
