Find the Typo! Win a Prize

To start off, no, the typo in question is not the intentional one in my oh so clever graphic. That would be too easy.

In order to play this game, you have to be one of the lucky owners of a copy of Dragon's Curse that preexists the files I just uploaded to KDP and CreateSpace fixing the typo in question (since it takes a little while for Amazon to update the existing files, if you hurry, you can get one of the typo-versions by clicking on the  link below. Yay! It's like an antique. Like one of those stamps accidentally printed upside down or a penny with two heads!):

Dragon's Curse (The Dragon and the Scholar) (Volume 1)

Seriously, though, I tried very very very hard to put out a great product in my book. I used a lot of people's eyes other than my own. I  read it back and forth at least  a dozen times. However, I've even seen traditionally published books with typos, so mistakes happen.

I'm calling this a typo, but  in all honesty. It isn't. It is a homophone slip  up, which isn't the same as just my fingers tripping and typing "teh"  instead of "the". I actually made a mistake and used the dang wrong word because it sounds/looks so much like the word it should've been.

So here's the deal: if you find the typo, email me and I will gift you a $5 Amazon.com gift card. Don't tell anyone else what it is. This deal is only good for the first three people to point out the typo (though if there happens to be another typo that I missed and you find that one instead of the one other people discovered, you will also win a prize.) because I can't afford to pay 200 people $5 and three seems a reasonable cut off point (once I've received the three winner's emails, I will edit this post to say Game Over).

You can message me through Facebook (here is my author page https://www.facebook.com/hlburkewriter . . . also, I may  have included a hint on my Facebook page to the location of the  mistake) or  email me (hlgstrider(at)gmail(dot)com).
