Thanks Tony. You are a real friend for making me feel better about my mistake.  I also wrote Sooz directly and she seems better about it. She;s had a tough six months, and this fed into some of the other types of problems she had, unfortunately. I do make mistakes and I do own them. 

Thanks Pal!

Gary

The first editions of books often have errors.  In my first business book, KISS, BOW OR SHAKE HANDS: HOW TO DO BUSINESS IN 60 COUNTRIES, the description of the time zones in Australia indicate that the sun rises in the West and sets in the East over Oz!  (Never trust a dyslexic to  give directions or explain time zones.)

But we corrected this is the next print run (small corrections don't qualify as a second edition), and the book has gone on to sell over 200,000 copies.

Hello members!
Today I realized two mistakes , both related to the Excess Baggage: Voices in the Main Line book. I want to apologize publicly and take full responsibility for the errors. Sooz Warfield authored Horse Weather, which is in the book but incorrectly attributed to Martha Nawrocki. Sigmund Gard is the Author of Sad Spring, who was misnamed Simon Gard. I apologize profusely to both authors for my error, resulting from the blind submission process and my error in transcribing names. Although the already distributed books have the errors, I have stopped all other sales and am making the corrections so that the next printing and all electronic versions distributed have the corrected information in the book.
The book launch today was well attended and it was good to see so many people come out and support the authors. The corrected version of the book should be able to be purchased online from Amazon and Kindle within the next week. It will not be available online until the corrected version is submitted and approved.
Please support your friends and the group by promoting the book. I'll send another email when the online purchasing is available with link information.
All the best,
Gary
