Errata: Chapter headline

I don’t know how I missed that through all the review cycles, but there is a printing error in the headline of chapter 6. The correct wording should be “Drawbacks & Mysteries” It seems that the printing font had a problem with the “&” sign.

I just read an Amazon comment on the prices of “Guardian in Magic” and wanted to comment on that:Yes, the book is a bit more expensive than some others. (But not at the upper limit of books prices I might add…) The main reason for this is that at usual printing batches for a first time author the starting price of the printer is already higher than the ordering price of some books in the shop. Interestingly with the one sort of books where the batchsize doesn’t matter (that would be E-Books) the retailers don’t go conform with the recommended sales price. (One I checked has added 20% to the recommendation.) Unfortunately there is nothing I can do about that…

Having said all that I also want to thank the person writing the comment. I appreciate that you think the book is after all worth it.
