I originally came from the tech industry, and I really loved the bounty programs. Things can get missed. Lots of eyes are better than just a few. Why not give readers a bounty for catching a typo? I mean, even the great Stephen King has a form on his site to report typos.
I am pretty meticulous – I go over my own manuscript mechanically twice, read it out loud once, then have it read to me once so I can listen to it. I have an editor. I have beta readers. I have ARC readers. All of them catch things – and yet, typos persist.
I decided to borrow from my technology background and create the BooBoo Bounty program – if you are the first person to report a typo, you’ll get an ebook of your choice free.[/one_half_last]
