Re: [Createspace to KDP] Changing title

David, will think about that when ready, however I might find deciding on a suitable series title harder work than writing a book.
Cheers. Ed

Re: [Createspace to KDP] Changing title

I have the opposite situation David. My first fiction book was a follow on from my family history books. One of the ancestors committed suicide so I thought I would write a fictional account of why he had done so. It gradually developed or perhaps morphed into a detective story. It worked out quite ...

Well there you go then, must have been asleep. Could have sworn it was only a five minute nap.

[KDP Scout ] latest offering from amazon

Not much of a fanfare about this latest offering from amazon, or perhaps I was having a nap. Seems a bit convoluted and will no doubt be manipulated by those who know how to do that stuff. However there will surely be some willing to enter the lottery to get $1500 advance. Another nail in the coffin...

Re: [FORMATTING] large document

A free alternative to Word is Libre open office. It is so long since I used word that I can't remember how it compare. The majority of oo users on CS consider that is superior.

Re: [SPAM] Strategy . . . Comments Wanted

Certainly appear to be being targeted by someone quite determined.

Could you create another section where all the untagged posts get diverted until they can be deleted?

Re: [INTRODUCTION] Sarah - Sleeping Cat Books

I bet you didn't expect a reply like that Sarah!

I must say there is a much higher standard of spam on this forum than on Cs. The Russian mafia?

Re: [SHIPPING] UK delivery times for proofs

I will accept that for some, or even many, the concept of the proof copy is important. Perhaps I should have clarified in my earlier post, that I cannot conceive in my own work that a proof copy would ever be relevant. Many of you have been publishing longer and much more prolifically than me so you...

Re: [SHIPPING] UK delivery times for proofs

I understand your table David and appreciate that there are savings on say twenty copies but I was specifically concerned about "proof" or more accurately for me "proofreading" copies of just two or three. To be honest Joe, I have never understood the rationale of a "proof" copy for dispute purposes...
