Oh great. I was sitting in the can and suddenly realized there’s a major error in my latest mystery novel. I had to republish it. Ah, the joys of being a self-published author. A glaring inconsistency might not be so bad in a regular novel, but in a mystery novel it’s kind of important that if something doesn’t add up, it’s a clue, not incompetence on the part of the author.
