ACROSTICS BY CYN
Occasionally, I make a goof in one of my puzzles — yep, it happens. Fortunately, one of my wonderful eagle-eyed solvers will usually catch it and let me know.
Any time an error is brought to my attention I correct it as soon as I can, and then post the correction here.
Thank you for keeping me on my toes! I aim to keep my books as error-free as possible, so please don't hesitate to let me know any time you catch a mistake. :)

For those who have copies of the book published before that date, here's a PDF of the corrected puzzle: Churning It Out (be sure to select "fit to page" before printing).
