Re: [AMAZON ORDER] Has Amazon ever given you such poor service?

Wow, how generous of them...not! I get better service from them when I order a book to be delivered to Australia. I think the longest I have waited was about ten days. I don't believe I have ever ordered a book printed by Spark though, at least, not that I was aware of. How many of your titles are w...

Re: [Book Blurb] Suggestions?

For me, the first line has me believing he is literally living in the past, as in time travel. Is it meant that way? "Until one year..." I think that should read how ever many ye...

Re: [Book Blurb] Suggestions?

Thank-you very much David, I really appreciate your time and your comments. The only correction I cannot use is the first one, as he is not an explorer. He is more like a hermit, hence the inclusion of 'solitary'. You weren't to know that of course. I very much like...sudden. That makes sense and ad...

Re: [Book Blurb] Suggestions?

Thanks Dan'l. Temple offered to write my blurb some time ago, but he is flat out with his real estate business at the moment. I do not want to push him for a favour while he is so busy. He somewhat jaded with the whole Indie world at present as well. Thank-you anyway. It is what it is I suppose. Che...

[Book Blurb] Suggestions?

I will be the first to see if this type of request is appropriate for the forum or not. I was told my original blurb for my second novel was well below par, and not interesting enough to warrant reading further. I hold that person's opinion in high regard. I will admit that I am not a good blurb wri...

Re: [AMAZON ORDER] Has Amazon ever given you such poor service?

Yeah, not sure I can answer that either Dan'l, never having ordered a product produced by Ingram. They may well be dragging the chain for any product that isn't KDP or Createspace, thereby encouraging folks to swap? Poor business practices if you are going to offer products from competitors. As for ...

[CreateSpace] Moderation gone loony

Walton and many other long standing members of the CreateSpace forum have had their posts moderated and rejected for no apparent reasons since before forming the Self-publishing forum. It would seem that they have a spy on here because anyone associated with the forum gets moderated on their forum a...
