Merry Christmas!!! I’m happy to announce…The World Did NOT End!!
I can’t believe another year has gone by so quickly. I did publish Treasure Tides - Book One of The Coins – in November at Smashwords.com. It was quite a mile-stone for me! I just had to “hack” my way through it all, and I have to say – it went so much more smoothly than anticipated. The whole “meatgrinder” idea filled me with dread.
Never one to be satisfied, I then began to research POD – or Print On Demand options. The first I tackled was Createspace – and after tweaking their template to hold the correct gutter (which took about 12 upload rejections), I converted the file from Word 2010 to Word 2007 and uploaded again. That one worked!
Then… I waited for a proof to be mailed to me (my Mother wants to read it, but is not inclined to use the IPAD - so I needed a paper copy). I am thankful for Mom’s stubbornness, because after I received the printed copy and reviewed it… I had to go in and correct some previously undetected errors on the e-book!! Those darn commas and quotation marks!
The other thing I didn’t like in the paperback version was the fact that the margins seem to be too close to the edge of the paper around the outside…so I will fix that prior to re-uploading.
Today I finished the RE-edit, uploaded my revisions to Smashwords, and will finish up the Createspace version this evening.
