A simple typo led to a lawsuit over 1.67 billion dollars.
What non-professional writers don’t understand is that publishers carry something called E&O insurance. E&O is errors and omissions. Because everyone understands human beings make mistakes.
But even so, if you are publishing yourself and you don’t have an editor, a copyeditor, and a proofreader, you’re a fool.
PS: I had to come back and correct an error here. See!?
