Move Forward with your Forewords!

Oh, sheesh. I've just seen it again. A self-published book well-edited, formatted correctly, with a "Foreward" by someone with a real or imagined notoriety.

Come on folks. If you want to be a real writer, learn to spell, and learn the difference between forward, foreward, and foreword.

So what are the differences?

Foreward: Misspelled "forward."

Foreword: Like, front word. An introduction to a book, generally written by someone of notoriety.

Forward: Moving in an onward direction.

We have INDIE reputations to uphold, folks. PLEASE get this one right.

What are your pet peeves in Indie Books?
