Yippee! I got the Kindle Creator Beta Kindle Direct Publishing to convert the eBook version I went over with ProWriting Aid ( https://prowritingaid.com) and formatted with The Book Designer interior template and cover template and got the book accepted on Kindle!
For eBooks to everybody except Amazon, I’m going with Pronoun ( https://pronoun.com/). I used Jutoh ( http://www.jutoh.com/index.htm) to convert my interior files to EPUB and do the verification check…it took me a while to get it adjusted right and fix the errors (EPUB doesn’t like ANY dashes). And cover files, boy have I been ’round and ’round with the cover files being high enough DPI, low enough kbytes, good enough resolution on all elements and even the proper physical dimensions.
Speaking of cover mayhem, I got Ingram Spark (ingramspark.com) to accept my cover changes and VIOLA! VIOLET! VOILA! Sentimental me, I put the eBooks on instant sale but the print version doesn’t go live until my birthday on July 9th.
I have learned just about enough to bust open in the last few months – good thing I have a good sewing machine. Now that I’ve bought and downloaded and learned and studied more, I should be able to get the next volumes of the series on the billboard much more efficiently. BTW I think each subsequent book is brighter than the sparkling gem that went before it.
What could go wrong now? I already bought a boatload of ISBNs from Bowker (http://www.myidentifiers.com) and have the Library of Congress as a favorite. I have the templates for formatting and the lifelong subscription to the editing program. Oh crap, I didn’t knock on wood….
