Yay! I went through the proof copy I have and have made a few adjustments.
There is one odd formatting for my dedication (for some reason, even though it is completely centered now, it shows up as not centered on the Createspace viewer. This is slightly annoying, but I don’t know what else to do with it. What are you supposed to do when you move the text over on the page, but it doesn’t move at all on the previewer? I’m not sure myself.
Aside from that one complaint, I am very satisfied with the quality of the Createspace printing. The paper is nice and thick and so is the cover. It is a higher-quality paperback than you find in most stores.
I have added a few pages of information in the appendix as a bonus for people purchasing the Createspace edition.
There is nothing like holding a physical copy of my book in my hands. In a way, it is like all of this book publishing has become really for me.
The Createspace edition is retailing for 12.99, here. https://www.createspace.com/5552584
Well, I’ve done all of the stuff to get my book on Google Play. Here’s an overview of what that’s all about, this is a great guide.
That being said, according to Google, it can take up to TEN days for Google’s test payment to arrive. It may be a change since the article was written though. Fortunately, it only took three days for it to be processed for me, yay!
Here’s the link to Google play.
To keep myself from dealing with the random discounts from Google, I have doubled the price on Google Play to avoid this. Here’s a nice little article about the issue if you’re unaware of what I’m talking about.
Sorry, Google Play fans. If this is an issue for you, please contact google to complain about their random discount policy that screws authors. Any complaints to me will be deleted and ignored.
I honestly wouldn’t have even bothered to upload to google play, but a friend of mine wanted it there, so I did it. Anyway, it’s out, and if I make a few sales there, I guess it will have been worth it, Yay!
The work to make my book into a print book was tough, but not tough enough to justify paying 199$ to CreateSpace to do it for you. This article helped me, and I’ll be much more prepared for my next book.
I’m still waiting for it to process, but I wanted to share my small victory as well as the link above with anyone that is planning on making a printed book with CreateSpace.
Wow, I have worked so hard to get myself to this point, I can hardly believe it’s real now.
I was going to wait until I had the Createspace and other editions online to say anything, but my editor went ahead and bought one when I sent her the link to see if it worked, lol. So I figured…”Might as well put this out there now then!”
Here it is, at .99 cents for a limited time!
I can hardly believe this is actually real now. I’m not sure if I really feel like an author or what yet, lol.
I’ll be updating my blog as more options come out for sales channels.
