No problem! I copyedited that chapter of Gauntlet and that word didn’t ping me as wrong when I read it, so I hadn’t looked into it very deeply before now. But I’m a huge nerd for words, so it’s super interesting for me to find out that it’s also a word in the printing industry, and how that word is connected to the older meaning. etc. Yep, I said HUGE nerd.
I’m really glad you’re enjoying the serialized format! I love reading things in serialization too–It’s so much fun getting all excited for the next part, it feels like every chapter is a big event. And the format works really well for a story like Gauntlet that dumps an ordinary person in this bizarre place with layers and layers of secrets to figure out.
