Public service announcement:
The City of Ruin ebook is now available – hurrah! However, it’s currently got quite a few errors in it… the usual stuff: two or more words being combined, hyphens in the middle of random words, that sort of thing (any other abuses of English are entirely my own).
My overlords at Tor UK have informed me that they’re now updating the ebook to get rid of said errors. Once they have the corrected file on Kindle, readers will have to contact Customer Services and will receive the corrected file free (you’ll be asked to delete the old file at this point. Kindle don’t ‘push’ a corrected file out to all readers unless the title has been removed from sale by them. Apparently for iBooks, if you delete and re-download, the file will be updated.
The Mark Charan Newton customer services team would like to thank you for your patience.
It’s very clear to me from discussions surrounding ebook formatting, that such mistakes are not uncommon in the industry, and that it is also frustrating to readers (especially when you fork out good money, right?). While I can see it being a right pain in the arse for publishers to quickly get their entire backlist out the door, I guess at some point you’d like to stop feeling like second-class readers…
