I cannot believe I have been so careless!

Oh dear - this is from a rather red-faced Rosalie.

Today was meant to be the day I posted here about my novel  Charity's Child going live on Amazon Kindle - which it has! And until half an hour ago I was very excited and bursting to tell everyone. But then a very kind friend and colleague emailed me to point out that part of a review I have quoted in the Product Description could be taken the wrong way and cause offence. I must say I had not read it that way, and I don't expect the reviewer meant it that way either, but now I look at it again, I do see the problem.

I have edited out the offending phrase and resubmitted to Amazon KDP, but I guess the changes will take a couple of days to show up. So if anyone downloads my book in the meantime, please bear this in mind.

As soon as the new edition goes up, I will post the link, etc. And then I'll finally be able to celebrate properly!

Best wishes
Red-faced  Ros

Here's the cover of my book anyway, to be going on with!


OK, well Amazon have been very prompt in updating my Product Description, which is now fine, so here are the links:

If it helps I couldn't find anything offensive in the description.

Thanks, Steve. Perhaps it has already gone.. I will check...

It might not be much comfort, but at one time or another we've all pressed that "send" button and then thought "Oh no!"

Rosalie Warren said...

Yep... I know. I felt especially bad though, as the comment, if taken the wrong way, completely misrepresents the tenor of the whole book.

But they seem to have changed it already, I'm pleased to say!

Glad it's sorted - although now I'm really curious about what was said!

Baggy said...

Me too!

Good luck with the book.

OK, well to give you a hint, it suggested that a gay relationship might be a 'problem' and could 'damage people's minds'! Or the comment could have been read that way (I didn't read it that way or I would never have included it! And I can't imagine that the reviewer meant it that way either.)

Thanks, Patsy and Baggy.

Congratulations, Rosalie - I can understand how you felt!

Thanks, Rosemary. Yes, it was a horrible feeling. Am heaving a big sigh of relief now everything seems to be OK...
