Dear Publishers (and Editors, and Authors):
If you are going to use the names of actual celebrities in your books, FOR THE LOVE OF EVERYTHING HOLY PLEASE SPELL THE NAMES CORRECTLY.
Two names that are almost constantly misspelled in print:
1. Lionel Richie. RICHIE. R-I-C-H-I-E. There is no T in Richie. It is NOT spelled RITCHIE. EVER.
2. Danielle Steel. STEEL. S-T-E-E-L. There is no E at the end of Steel. It is NOT spelled STEELE. EVER.
Seriously, what the heck?
Yes, I have seen both of these mistakes in recent galleys. And yes, I am surprised that either of these celebrities was mentioned, but they are big-time famous, whether they've had any recent hits or whether you hate their books or whatever. They're famous. Spell their names correctly.
