I’ve published a couple of updates to The Lion in Paradise — mostly they were typos or MLIs (Momentary Lapses of Intelligence) and don’t really affect the story per se. Calling Delaney a Major when she was a Colonel at that point was probably inexcusable, though. And I know it’s 5.56 NATO, my fingers just didn’t type that; they typed .556 NATO. The latter, if it were real, would probably be a much better calibre, anyway. But it’s not real, so oh well.
And if you knew how much time I spent proofreading the damn thing and still missed those errors, well…it just is what it is. We’re trying to move, there’s an HR crisis at work, and I’m just. Fucking. Tired.
So anyway…how’s life in the clean world?
Another BTW, and it’s a bit of a spoiler, so you’ll have to highlight it to read it: If you read the first half, you know Ariela has an adopted daughter in addition to the two of her own. If you’ve read the second half, you may be scratching your head at the adopted daughter’s absence. There is a reason for that, and it’s as simple as the adopted daughter is on al-Saḥra’ pulling duty with the SFM at that time. Don’t worry, though; she shows up again in the Epilogue.
And that’s all I have at the moment. Book’s live, go buy it or read it on KU. Thanks 🙂
