From Wikipedia:

bug bounty program is a deal offered by many websites, organizations and software developers by which individuals can receive recognition and compensation [1] for reporting bugs, especially those pertaining to exploits and vulnerabilities. These programs allow the developers to discover and resolve bugs before the general public is aware of them, preventing incidents of widespread abuse.

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]
