Several people have pointed out to me, with the best of intentions, that there are a few copyediting/consistency errors in Insurgent. I’m not going to tell you what they are, because some people won’t catch them and I don’t want to spoil the read for them. Just know that if you read something and get confused and think you might be misreading or misinterpreting, it might not be your mistake, but rather mine.
I just wanted to talk about why these errors happen. I used to read books and think “with so many rounds of edits, how can these mistakes slip by?” And that is a fair question. I have a very talented copyeditor and proofreader who catch so many errors it’s not even funny. I am also a perfectionist and am generally diligent about checking details. So how did this happen?
