Only certain types of errors ever get emailed, so I never know (if there ARE page numbers in the table of contents and someone says something, that'll get flagged and emailed. If there is a missing word, a misspelled word, whatever. Nope. So, emails directly to me are preferable because, of course, I want to correct whatever I know about.

I can't proof my own stuff. My brain knows what it thinks it wrote and forget it. It sees stuff that isn't there and doesn't see what is.
I was curious. I've come across it in some of yours and a couple of other authors too. Seems like most of the errors I'm seeing are either extra words or wrong words that make no sense in the sentence and occasionally a misspelling.

I never even thought about emailing anyone about them. *smacks head* Sorry guess I should have let you know when I saw them.

That makes sense about not editing your own.
