Re: [KDP Paperback] Some early results

That doesn't sound right. I was always under the impression that if they discounted your book, that your royalty would remain the same, that the discounted part would be taken from their share alone? I would be asking them about that if it happened to me.

[KDP Paperback] Some early results

Not sure what is causing it but I am experiencing a few sales of paperbacks online recently. In the last two months I have sold more paperbacks online through KDP than in the two years I was with CS! Mind you, we are talking very low numbers here. I usually only sell paperbacks through local distrib...

Re: [Satisfaction Guarantee] for KDP Print?

Yeah, I'm in the same boat. Should have forked out for my own ISBNs at the beginning. You at least have the option of remaining with KDP for your paperbacks. As KDP do not ship to Oz, I have no options but to transfer my catalogue to IS. If I cannot purchase author copies at a discounted rate, I may...

Re: [Satisfaction Guarantee] for KDP Print?

I thought that you had transferred your catalogue to IS? I am about to publish my first book with them.

Re: [Satisfaction Guarantee] for KDP Print?

Like you Dan'l, I was unable to find any satisfaction guarantee listed anywhere. I will say, though, that there is a contact us button on the KDP site and every time I have contacted them over something, they have responded within 24 hours like they say they will.

Re: [D2D] New POD for paperbacks

Hi Stacey and Sarah,
I have since learned that D2D will not have their own print facilities, that they will be outsourcing, most likely, to IS. No point in using them in that scenario. More advantageous to go directly through IS for me.

[D2D] New POD for paperbacks

Draft 2 Digital have announced alpha testing of their new program for paperbacks. I will be very interested to see if they ship proofs and author copies to Australia. I will be using IS for my next three novels(all due for release in the next 2-3 months), as I have purchased a block of ten ISBNs and...

Re: [warning move CS to KDP] different set of rules

You are quite right. Some of the CS generated material is not compatible with KDP like a cover made with CS's Cover Creator. However, it is purportedly, only a problem if you access the files or make changes. Just recently, I sold three paperbacks through KDP after having my files transferred. I am ...

Re: [spammed private messages] Deleting private messages

I haven't come across the problem myself. Always managed to get rid of the messages. Mind you, as a Moderator, when I removed spam on the board for that day, the notifications/messages were deleted along with them. You may have to PM Walton if the problem persists. Moderators do not have access to y...
