I was reading a funny thread on Kindleboards the other day where they were talking about the most overused words and phrases in titles. Confessions of a…was one of them.
But wait, I really do have a confession.
Since the Day of Sacrifice stories are serialized, I always reread them before I start writing another one. It helps me get back into the world and I make notes for continuity. Every once in a while, though, something sneaks past me.
After I finished Dormant and was putting together the DoS Vol. 1-3, I realized that Edgar Grant wasn’t called Edgar in Day of Sacrifice. I believe I called him George.
I’ve also had to go back and change the ages of some of the characters. When you’re dealing with angels and vamps and they can be hundreds of year old, well, sometimes I get carried away and make them, like, 500 or something. Realistically (? !) the oldest of them are in their 200’s.
So, when I sat down to make the list of characters and terms for DoS today I found that I’d written there were six Gods in Day of Sacrifice and then only written four God characters in Takeover. I immediately fixed this problem and uploaded Takeover everywhere again, but just so ya know, some of you ended up with the *special* 4 Gods edition.
What can I say? I don’t get enough sleep and I’m constantly interrupted by apple juice swilling toddlers. I decide to cater parties and publish books at the same time.
Not your problem.
If you’ve got a 4 Gods version and aren’t notified when the correct one uploads to whichever site you purchased it from, let me know and I’ll see what I can do to get you a new copy.
I realize this is one of those things that if I hadn’t said anything 99 percent of you wouldn’t have noticed, but it’s embarrassing for me and makes me feel lame when I make dumb mistakes.
End of confession. 🙂
Check out the new DoS Characters and Terms page. I had a lot of fun making it. I think I’m also going to add a Couples and a Who Killed Who list. With a great big ol’ spoiler warning before it, of course.
