Re: [Smashwords] What happened?

I still pop in from time to time, but there's not much action here lately. Also, I've been travelling -- to WorldCon in Helsinki, then spent a few weeks travelling around Europe. Now I'm back in Australia and have four writers festivals and conventions to attend for the remainder of the year. It's b...

Re: [CS] CreateSpace - Barcodes

Joe, you should think about joining SPN. You'll never pay another set-up or revision fee at IS ever again. And if I end up doing your covers, you won't have to worry about the "tougher" submission process.

Re: [ARCS] Netgalley options

I haven't used a co-op, but I had a subscription with NetGalley for 2 years. Not sure if you saw my reply on that other forum. Anything longer than a month isn't going to get more exposure. After 2-3 weeks the book becomes invisible due to the constant release of new titles, and requests will dry up...

Re: [spam] how to deal

What about two-step validation, where after initial registration the user has to confirm via email that it's a valid account? That, along with the captcha, should help reduce the problem. Also their first post should be automatically moderated. There is a function in Wordpress that allows this for b...

[KINDLE] Scammers broke the Kindle store this weekend

https://davidgaughran.wordpress.com/2017/07/15/scammers-break-the-kindle-store/ More evidence of Amazon's failure to moderate, not just in their forums but the users of their services. It seems too easy to exploit. I for one am happy to promote non-Amazon services. This is their opportunity to rise ...

Re: [INGRAMSPARK] Any Small Press Network (Australia) members here?

SPN? No, it's exclusively an Australian industry organisation.

Or the free setup? If you're a member of IBPA or other industry organisation, they have deals with IngramSpark. I'm not a member, so not sure what perks they get.

Re: [FORMATTING] B&W Illustrations (not photos)

If you can create an image in PS, you can create a page. Use half of the cover template to show margins and bleeds for left or right pages.

Re: [MARKETING] Worldcon75 Helsinki

Hi Deborah,

I think I might be on this panel with you. :) I'm still waiting for confirmation from the organisers about which ones I'm on.
