Here's an article on Moving From Createspace to KDP that explains some things. Mainly, I learned why I can't find the easy way to port my books over. They don't give you the option, I guess, until they send you the letter. And I haven't gotten mine yet. I expect they're doing all the more important, better selling people first. :shrug:
My proof for Sleeping Ugly arrived yesterday. It's gorgeous. Unfortunately, there was a glitch in the Createspace system and I had no way to approve it. I wrote them a note and they fixed it. I approved the paperback and it's available for purchase now at CS. It'll be available on Amazon in 3-5 days.
Here's the paperback cover...
I'm waiting on the proof for Early Grave. Here's the print cover I came up with for that...
Every finger crossed that my paperbacks work out with the Amazon printing process. If I have to buy a new set of proofs for 12 books, it's going to put a dent in my budget. And if I have to buy all new proofs, I'll be giving away old proofs. My friggin' proof shelf is overloaded as it is.
Oh, and I ordered copies of Sleeping Ugly. When those arrive, I'll do a giveaway or something.
Don't expect a paperback of Blink of an I any time soon. I had planned to start that process after I did Early Grave, but then the CS thing became real. It's gone this long without a paperback, it can go a little while longer.
Meanwhile, it's back to manuscript polishing on Unequal for me. I have about a hundred pages left to go before I send this to AWE tomorrow. And after I finish this, I will be back to writing new words on Ugly and the Beast.
Have a great weekend, folks.
