FOR READERS: Are Typos the Cost of Finding new Authors?

Today’s reader topic comes from QSFer Scott:

Yes, typos suck. But given the cost of a good editor (and all the other self pub costs), is it a price readers have to pay to discover new writers? Discuss.

  1. Accidental typos don’t bother me as much as some deliberate ones which have become standard spellings: island, embassy, debt, ok, and so on.

    I don’t have an accessible public library, so I look on Smashwords, Amazon, and so on. If I’m looking for lesbian disability science fiction, or lesbian disability fiction, or lesbian science fiction, or disability science fiction, or …, I end up having to wade through a lot that isn’t any of that. Both sites have very buggy search tools, aimed at giving people more results to sift through than a few relevant results which meet all the search terms. Descriptions and samples can help, but they can also give a false impression.
