Proofreaders Matter!

In the Case of the Billion-Dollar ERISA Typo, 7th Circuit Upholds Win for Verizon

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!?
