spelling

This week we released the eBook of Gabe Durham’s novel Fun Camp.

There are now a number of ways to get a copy, including SPD (they just ordered a second helping of books).

But Amazon is a great option, too, for both print and the Kindle. I’m currently partial to them because when I sent the file over, they proofread it. They found 34 possible spelling errors. I think these errors make a nice preview of the book and show off Gabe’s facility with language, so I’ve decided to share the list below. Thanks Amazon!
