Typos Galore!

Now, I may only be about 100 pages into this book, but the typos are driving me nuts! They are so numerous that they are actually causing confusion; 'By's' turn into 'Buy's' and many words have been smushed together. I guess I'll just have to soldier through it. Gemma d...

I've now read my way through the Hollywood Headlines Series, the Las Vegas book and two of the five High Heels Series books. I enjoy the stories - her writing style is similar to Janet Evanovich. Unfortunately, most of the books (at least the Nook version) have atrocious spelling and syntax errors. It doesn't appear that anyone took the time to go through and spell check the book at all! Drives me crazy, but not enough not to read the books. If Ms. Halliday wants to step up her game and make it into the big leagues, she should exercise some quality control over the product that is published in her name.

    Cute series. I'm really enjoying it. Read the 'High Heels' serie

    Cute series. I'm really enjoying it. Read the 'High Heels' series. In this series we see Felix Dunn and the L.A. Informer in another light. Each book in the 'Hollywood Headlines' series follows a different member of the Informer staff. I would have given this book a fourth star but I agree about the grammer, puncutation and spelling errors. There is at least one per page and it drives me crazy!

    Good story

    I loved the first book in Gemma's Hollywood Headlines series, Scandal Sheet. This book had a good story and was a good follow up to the Scandal Sheet, but there were so many editing errors (typos, spelling mishaps and grammatical errors) that it nearly drove me crazy trying to figure out what she meant to say sometimes. I don't think I'll purchase another of her books without reading a sample first to see if she's cleaned up the mistakes.
