Re: [POD] Print-on-Demand publishing for non-Latin alphabets

Another possibility, although Spark is probably the best, is 360 Digital Books, http://www.wbsusa.com/books-article. I have not used them; but they offer many more options for paper, binding, etc. They have a minimum of something like 26 copies, and they do not directly hook into Amazon. But they ar...

Re: [KDP] KDP account terminated

Inasmuch as you seem resigned to this . . . it's safe to muse over content cannot be read, is not coherent and readable what kind of book did you publish!? certainly a wagging, moralistic, finger is in order.

Michelle, thank you. It wasn't until I read your post that I remembered tailoring my resume to look for work, many many years ago. I think I had something over 12!

Re: [CS] My forum profile was deleted

Last week I contacted CS CustomerService. I asked them if they could transfer all of our points over to the KDP forum. I suggest that everyone should ask that our points be transferred . I would guess that around 50% of the KDP forum questions will end up about print. If you read most of the print r...

Re: [PRESS KIT] Focus on author or book?

I'm impressed! I've talked about press kits whenever someone asks about marketing. And, lo, here you are asking a great question. In advertising, there are two major categories (greatly oversimplifying here): brand advertising and product advertising. Or, you might say author advertising and book ad...

Re: [INTRODUCITON] New here

The KDP community is different. They border on snarky, although that may change. There is no apparent humor. And their answers tend to be vague and uninformed regarding print books. Some of this should change when CS people move over to KDP. But we will be interlopers for some time to come.

Re: [BOOK] 15 Best Things to Do in Verona

I came close to pruning you and your post from the site. My first thought was this is spam. I looked at it more closely, and decided that it isn't, although it might not be appropriate for the site. I'm sure other moderators will have a point of view. Note that I tagged your post. If it's not leadin...

Re: [CreateSpace] PDF transfer problems

Curious! He must have removed his posts by the time I asked Sarah what she meant. I did welcome him to this forum, inasmuch as I remember him from the CS forum. I recall he took offense at things on the CS forum--probably at some things I said. I do not recall his asking me about becoming a moderato...
