I really should know better, but I really should a lot of things…
Yesterday, I got super excited about the upcoming release of the new A. S. King book EVERYBODY SEES THE ANTS, which comes out on October 3. A. S. King really is my favorite YA author. I wanted her to know how excited I was! She wrote the amazing THE DUST OF 100 DOGS and PLEASE IGNORE VERA DIETZ. Both are totally worthy of all 5 Blings! If you haven’t read either, go do it right now! I’ll wait…
So, she’s totally amazing, right! See why I was so excited for another A. S. King book?! Well, I maybe got a little too excited. I wrote this on her Facebook page:
“I can’t wait to read EVERYBODY SEE THE AUNTS!”
Yup! I did it. AUNTS not ANTS.
I. So. Totally. Could. Have. Died!
I’m a teacher, spell-checker, proofreader, and super re-checker! I want someone to make me an app that lets you correct people on the internet with a red pen. I secretly judge people who mix up there/their & your/you’re. I mean, what happened? Well, I happened. I oops-ed my way right into being a typo-queen!
A. S. King is my favorite author for a reason. She was so awesome about it. She laughed and teased me with a possible typo-sequel called EVERYBODY SEES THE UNCLES. Even better, she started a contest to give away an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) of EVERYBODY SEES THE ANTS on her blog. It was inspired by the well meaning typos we all make and she even gave me a shout-out. (FIST PUMP!)
Check out the EVERYBODY SEES THE PANTS contest here:
Think up a funny typo-ish A. S. King book title and enter!
If you win, will you loan me your copy?!
