Hi Janny,

I've been reading Peril's Gate on my iPhone (my paperback copy is literally falling apart :D) and I came across this delight... (Down towards the bottom of the page. Sentence starting "His lungs and chest felt..."

Harper Collins ad in Peril's Gate

Is this something you can chase up and get fixed? I didn't expect to get ads midword in a paid book :D

The Kindle versions has "Visit for exclusive information on your favorite author. This appears right in the middle of the word "strapped".

They jumped on it. It's an error, not an ugly snapshot of the future....I have to than you guys for the heads up - they say the problem's fixed.

Nor did they know how it even happened in the first place....

I'll bet this doesn't mean that we can get a replacement though. :-(

I just checked the Kindle Customer forums on Amazon and apparently they will send an e-mail to people who have bought a book informing them of changes/corrections so that they can download the fixed version. I'll keep you all posted.

Well I was going to say if I were you I'd be on them until they gave me a replacement!

I suppose it will take a little time for the fix to percolate through the systems.

Thanks for getting it sorted Janny. I'm with Trys, I hope that we get an update to it (for me, via the Australian iTunes store).
