I find it humorous when I see professional print with mispellings or the wrong word is used, haha.  If one isn't wise enough to do something properly themselves, they would be far better to enlist a professional for help.

Debe Maxwell, CRS I think most people are skipping over the picture entirely because I thought there'd be more fun banter about the sign. Haha!

And yes, contact Marte Cliff. She's a keeper. -Kasey

Endre Barath, Jr. thanks! Even in the real estate industry, there are different specialties, and I am enjoying staying in the real estate industry but transitioning more into editing and proofreading. It's actually what I've done as a broker for the last decade and a half review contracts and files so it's nothing new for me. I hope you are having a great weekend! -Kasey

Smart sign painters use spell-check.

It is good to have many resources within the membership of ActiveRain.

I am counting on you identify my typos.

Kasey - I read a lot of books, and have found some really funny typos and errors. The other day the person they were referencing switched genders in the middle of a sentence! In another book, they slipped up and spelled "Sondra" as "Sandra" a couple of times.

These are books by major publishers - the kind who have plenty of editors and proofreaders.

Marte Cliff, you'd be amazed at how often authors can't decide on one spelling of a name. I find misspelled or differently spelled names ALL THE TIME. I proofread a novel earlier this summer and the author had spelled 4 different character names several different ways (it was fantasy and the names weren't normal, so understandable) and one particular name he spelled 3 different ways. He was so embarrassed that he missed those. I told him not to worry, it was common, and that's what proofreaders are for. -Kasey

You'd think by now we'd all know that we all make mistakes and no one is an expert at everything.

But still, people like your author are embarrassed when they make mistakes, and agents are often embarrassed to tell me that while they can write everything else, they can't write their own bios.

It's silly.

Kasey - they're hard to write about yourself, but writing a bio about someone else is fun - a bit like putting puzzle pieces together.

I wonder why things like this aren't caught at the printer or the professional sign painter level but of course they aren't. Maybe they don't know either.
