ALL is WELL (finally!)

Finally, both my SHELBY books are online & available and the eBook formats are correct and WILL download!!

I learned a valuable lesson with the uploading process of the new book, The Great FOREST CAPER. This time I was all prepared and did the ‘right’ thing by going to CreateSpace first.

Imagine how pleased I was to see that CreateSpace offers to send a file directly to Amazon for the eBook version. And of course, I clicked YES.  Who wouldn’t?

Now try to imagine my horror on discovering that the eBook was empty, no material at all would download except the cover!  What on earth was happening?

A few hours over two or three days spent on emails and phone calls (both CreateSpace and KDP have excellent telephone help) I discovered the file has to be a word document (several are acceptable) but never a PDF. Now why would CreateSpace knowingly send a PDF?  For that there is no answer. I even received a copy of it for safe-keeping.

The lesson learned was this:  NEVER, absolutely NEVER, ASSUME that things are done right. Check, and check again!

Next step was to go back to my .doc version, take out the page numbers,  and do the necessary page breaks, and upload it to KDP.

Guess what?  IT WORKED, and I DID IT MYSELF after all!
