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

You need three: one for each book and one for you. If you want to get speaking gigs, you are the product, not your books. It’s like going to a theme restaurant—the food may be secondary to the experience, and that is the Point of Difference from other restaurants.

You get points just for posting at KDP, regardless of whether the post is helpful or not.

Just spent some time reacquainting myself with the KDP forum -- still as bitchy as ever.

Are KBoards any better?

Re: [CS] My forum profile was deleted

I can access my dashboard, but if I click the Community link while logged in the site doesn’t load and the URL contains the word “disabled”. So I’m obviously banned. I don’t care: the whole forum will be gone soon enough, but it’s still a surprise after all this time.

[CS] My forum profile was deleted

So, I thought I'd check in to the CS forum for any replies to some posts I'd offered help on this morning. Only to find my whole forum profile is deleted. All my posts, gone. My name in the "Helpful Members" box, gone.

No email or any explanation or warning from CS.

There are quite a few free/low cost PDF conversion programs for PC. Not so many for Mac, but they are out there.
That's because any program can print to PDF on a Mac. ;) 8-) :P

Re: [Xinxii] I guess Xinxii is dead

I have books in English and Spanish. I use IngramSpark for print and Publish Drive for ebooks. PD recently signed a huge deal with a Chinese ebook seller. I'm looking forward to reaching that market. I've pulled all my content from KDP, because of reports of suppression and incorrect copyright issue...

Re: [Xinxii] I guess Xinxii is dead

I’ve heard of them, but didn’t know anyone who used the service. I hope they don’t owe you money.

If you’re looking for a new aggregator, I highly recommend Publish Drive http://admin.publishdrive.com/registrat ... ooksptyltd
