News and Discussion about new books or old books / Re: typos in book 11. (spoilers alert)
« Last post by Ty on August 17, 2017, 05:56:19 PM »
Ok here we go.....

First, this one is only where Chrisa is refering to the Yenisei and Salado as SC Destroyers, instead of Scout-Destroyers.  Maybe not a typo but technically incorrect and i thought i'd just mention it.  Its in chapter 7, epub version page 160.2/636.

Second one might also not be a mistake.  It just says that the Koshi would be traveling at Light-9790 during a bombing run, instead of Marc-1.  Again, i thought i'd mention it, just in case.  Its in chapter 18, epub version page 412.5/636.

Next one, in chapter 19, the sentence: "She understand politics."  It should be: "She understands politics."   Epub version page 428.6/636.

Chapter 21, Lori says to Christa, "Jen, since you arrived last, why don't you take number four."  A bit of a name mix up there.  Epub version page 476.7/636.

And this last one is just a comma that you missed.  I'm not sure if its just me, but every time I've read that part, I've had to stop and reread the sentence because of the missing comma.  Nearly at the end of chapter 22, the sentence: "But some I'm able to retain in my biological brain."  There should be a comma after "some" I think.  Epub version page 502/636.

That's it, I think.  I am by no means a good editor but I do sometimes notice things.  Small mistakes and typos don't bother me personally but I know you probably want to be aware of them.  But now I'm moving on to other books.  I need to get AGU withdrawal over with. Lol  :D ;)

You'll have to read AGU-12 to learn that.   ;)

I'll just take that to mean that there is some form of real time communication before the wormhole forms and that SC will learn how to use for communications independently from the wormhole---until i read book 12 and get proven wrong anyway.  ;)

Btw, i will probably post a few more typos late today in the typo topic.  My reread of the book has been going very slowly due to IRL but i did find more very minor typos.  I've just been waiting to finish it so i can post them all at once.

how do the cosmic jump gates establish a connection without some kind of instantaneous communication between them before the jump gate is activated? 

You'll have to read AGU-12 to learn that.   ;)

"...With a single pass, the SC ships seem to have a senser reading of all the Dakinium-sheath Denubbewa ships in the vicinity even though the Neutrino Measurement Sensor only has a range of ten kilometers..." 

If the ships have their main entranceway open, as would be the case if the fleet was stationary in order to work on sheathing the warships, they would be picked up on the normal sensors when the scout vessel got within four billion kilometers (DeTect range). The goal wasn't to get perfect images. It was to verify the presence of the ships. But the SC ship could select it's path through the fleet of ships to provide the best images of the motherships as it passed through the area. While reconnaissance planes on Earth would normally just have cameras mounted beneath the fuselage or wings, or facing forward or backward, ships in space should be able to provide 360 degree images relative to the target.

And another question, how do the cosmic jump gates establish a connection without some kind of instantaneous communication between them before the jump gate is activated?  What i mean is, how does one gate know to activate when another gate tries to establish a connection?  The only explanation i can come up with is that the rough location of a gate is part of initiating signal and that a gate can detect the attempt to connect and focus the connection.  But it has problems, like if a jump gate is on a ship and the ship moves around or if more then one jump gate is in the immediate vicinity.  The Denubbewa have their jump gates on ships that are often in groups so that would be a problem.
But don't worry, i won't be asking for the schematics on the Cosmic Jump Gates.  I know thats classified. ;) lol

There's one thing i've been wondering about.  With a single pass, the SC ships seem to have a senser reading of all the Dakinium-sheath Denubbewa ships in the vicinity even though the Neutrino Measurement Sensor only has a range of ten kilometers.  I would think that even if all the ships were only meters apart, the area would be a lot greater the just ten kilometers.  Arent the motherships themselves one hundred twenty-six kilometers long?  The is what it says in book 9 anyway.  Ten kilometers in space terms is almost like a car at night with headlights that only reach a few feet, probably less.  Now i would expect the SC ships would make multipul passes and create a simulated image but it doesnt say they did that and i think it specifically says that they only made a single pass on a few occasions.

Welcome to the forum, Alisia. I'm pleased that you've enjoyed my books and appreciate your support.

Amazon's goal is to offer books at lower prices than other booksellers in an effort to continue their domination of the market. I understand their position. It's the same position that manufacturers adopted decades ago when they moved their manufacturing operations overseas to take advantage of cheap labor there. While it helped the manufacturers compete, it was devastating to the U.S. workforce. I'm able to write three full-length novels each year because I make enough income to do it fulltime. Most authors, both Independents and Traditionally Published, must work a full-time non-writing job and then work on their books nights and weekends because their books don't pay enough to support them and their families. In that respect, I've been very fortunate. And I get as much fun from writing the books as my fans get from reading them. As I lay my head down on the pillow each night, I'm thinking about the story I'm currently working on and plotting where I can take the protagonist next.   ;D

I appreciate your personal promotion of my stories.

Just joined the forum today and this may be hard to believe but I've never been part of a forum or left comments on any site of any kind. I know I sound like I'm 80 years old but I don't like being out there for just anyone or any company to have any more access to me than they already do. I love the AGU universe & am saddened but not surprised Amazon is abusing authors. Thank you for calling attention to this practice so I can make purchases that benefit those whom it should. Too bad we don't have a Jennetta Carver in real life working behind the scene to outsmart them. I guess it's up to everyday people to come together & get things done. Please keep writing such fun & imaginative books. I'll keep telling everyone I know to buy them.

This really belongs in the Spoiler Alert thread, so that's where I answered it.

Response to Tiggerboy's post on the main AGU-11 thread.

Yes, there are a LOT of issues to be faced with the Jumakas being declared sentient. I dragged it out because I had planned to include so much in this book that I felt those sentiency issues would be better resolved at a later time.

No one is being allowed to pair with a kitten unless the Jumaka and the Terran mutually agree to the bonding. As it says in the first chapter, the Jumakas are not pets.

Who said that the Jumakas will always be so far away? If they happen to come to Quesann, distance won't be a problem. They weren't brought initially because they were too immature. Besides, how can Tayna and Cayla produce additional litters if the guys are so far away?   8)

Jenetta made that statement when she was lobbying to have both Jumakas remain with her, rather than agreeing to the one pet rule. And no one, not even Jenetta, knew that the Jumakas were sentient at that time and that they understood they weren't allowed to rip up her quarters.

I understand the 'twins switch' considerations, but I think the bonding is more important than simple coloration considerations. And using a permanent dye on fur shouldn't be that difficult, if it was important to the parties involved. Or they could use a temporary dye for a temporary situation.   ;D
