    I think after this I will avoid any name ending in an S.
    :-) Agnes isn't a main character though and only pops up a few times, so either way it shouldn't annoy people too much. :-) Thanks for all the comments!

    It's nice to know that the editors who cry that they have no time to read manuscripts pick up on important stuff like this. I'm sure this type of error has a major impact on book sales.

    Um... yah, we "pick up on it" when we're stuck being the damned souls that have to read such crapOHla & find that 99.99% of the mss we look at are so overlarded with these gaffes that they often number 20-per-sentence, if you can call thoise things "sentences."

    That's why I'm considered wildly generous for having an average per-manuscript review time of almost 60 seconds.

    Does not getting past a single damned editor or agent count as a "major impact," son?
