This person should not be writing a book -- at least not in English

From an online discussion:

Many you can help me with my problem. Well I think I made a huge mistake by choosing the wrong publishing company. Well I sent my children’s book along with my illustrations and paid close to 500. dollars. Every thing was finally sent to the printer, people began to order my book and suddenly when I received my hardcopy their was atleast 25 text errors. How in the blank could a publishing company do this to a new and inexperienced author. So Im left with resubmitting my book and additional fee’s. What should I do. Please help me.

  • Based on the poor writing in the question, it's possible that the "text errors" were caused by the author, not by the publisher.
  • If the cost of publication was just $500, there was probably no money available for editing.
