Now here’s a funny thing. When a book is published many sets of eyes look over the manuscript. The author will reread their work over and over again. Beta readers and editors aplenty check and recheck, yet sometimes errors still get through.
It was only when I started writing Argentum (book 2 of my P.A.W.S. series) that I realized I had named two characters in the P.A.W.S. Institute, Cedric. Not only that, both were animagi owls. There was Cedric Ainsworth, the teacher, and Cedric, the librarian. None of my beta readers or editor or publisher had even noticed, but now I had a problem. Were the teacher and the librarian the same person? I toyed with that and then decided that they were father and son, so now there’s Cedric Ainsworth, Senior, the librarian, and Cedric Ainsworth, Junior, the professor.
In Argentum I even added a sister at the New York P.A.W.S. Institute, Maybeline Ainsworth also a librarian and an animagus owl. So Cedric, Jr, Cedric Sr, and Maybeline Ainsworth would like to wish you a happy Superb Owl Sunday!
