My book has a few errors, but I can’t afford an editor. I have decided to put corrections on this page.  Some things are not mistakes. For example, the use of British spelling is deliberate, not in error. And I spell “magick” with a “k” for reasons that are revealed in the story. The mistakes that have been discovered are corrected below.

I wrote this in Google Docs and exported it to MS Word; however, the formatting was messed up in the transition and caused line breaks where I didn’t want them and took out breaks that I did want. I’ve worked on correcting those errors, but some remain. Going forward, I’ll write everything in MS Word and save myself a lot of headaches. I also have ProWritingAid now so there will be fewer issues in the next book in the series.
