I usually get a list of words (character names) that Amazon flags as misspellings when I upload a book. Haven't seen an email for spelling errors.
I kind of remember that now, not as an email. Which makes it odd because my book that is on preorder now has toddler speak in several chapters but it didn't pick up the misspellings.

I never get emails anymore. It showed up on my dashboard as needing attention.

Yeah, you could run it through that like you do on the previewer. That would make too much sense though.

That's interesting. I also had assumed it was from reader reports.

If only we could get access to this AI pre-publication so we could use it as an extra proofread.

I think my preorder just locked today, I'm not sure what time they do it.
I'll let you know if I get anything like that. It's entirely possible I will, I have a toddler in there and he has a couple of conversations.
Baff womb for bath room, for example.
I don't know what they expect you to do about it since they locked it.
Good luck on the release. May you get many orange tags.

I thought it was part of the setup/previewing process.

I've never been dinged before the book was even out.

And most of my books have been dinged about something. Mostly long after they've been released. There's usually something wrong in every book, somewhere. Everyone's, not just mine.

I always thought they were reader triggered.

This 1 can't have been though.

Amazon just notified me of a 'typo' in a book currently in lockdown for release.

I thought these notifications came from people notifying them of mistakes.

Apparently not.

It wasn't a typo, but a genuine spelling error Word didn't pick up.

Is this normal to get dinged before a book is even out? Or something new?

I'm not sure I'd consider Russian Brides or The Letters of the Devil very literary. 😜

They definitely don't relate to my genre. The worrying thing is that so far nothing I've done has changed them and I assure you they aren't the genre or comparables I've been advertising to. I can't say that I've ever run into this problem before or at any rate not to this extent.
