Re: [CREATESPACE] Margin Error upon Submission of Interior

This is like following a conversation in an alien language. :) Glad you techno-geeks know what you are talking about. I just add pictures to my books and hope like crazy they turn out. So far so good, although experts would disagree. I guess I am learning by following this thread, but buggered if I ...

Re: [COVER] Opinions

Thank-you Michelle. I appreciate your taking the time to make a comment. I have had someone look at the blurb and the following is the result: This was the original offered by the collaborator: The first killing shocks the township of Ingham, in Queensland, Australia with its brutality. Detective Se...

Re: [COVER] Opinions

Had another crack at this. Found a premade to suit. Still not overly impressed with the blurb and calling it a WIP. Will try to find pro help in that regard. Thoughts? BTW, came across a brilliant piece about blurb writing. http://victoriamixon.com/2016/03/21/how-to-write-a-blurb/ Now, you'd think t...

Re: [CreateSpace] Digital Viewer + Chrome

Just another thought Kay, have you done a cleanout lately? Of your cookies and cache? Sometimes that will clear a few issues.

Re: [CreateSpace] Digital Viewer + Chrome

I just went over to CS to see if I can view the only custom-made cover I have in the reviewer and it worked perfectly. I am using Chrome for my browser and have not had to adjust anything. Walton may have an answer for you as he is up with the techno-stuff more than I. So you are not able to use the...

Re: [CREATESPACE] draft book (24 pages)

Or you could do what I did for my practice/draft book by writing a few pages. That silly little test book of mine, book for book, has outsold all my others.

Re: [COVER] Opinions

Thank-you all. One thing I know, my blurbs always suck! I can't write a good blurb to save myself. Temple Williams wrote one for me a few years ago that was killer, but I do not ask an author for favours. I will have to rethink this one a bit. Thanks for your opinions.
Joe.

Re: [Cover] Opinions

No. The heartbeat on the monitor just seemed a good idea rather than anything like an actual heart. There is a vague connection to chemistry, but that's about as close as it gets to anything medical. In my second draft, I could conceivably have a victim/s hooked up to a monitor if need be. I like th...

[COVER] Opinions

I'd like to ask the group for their opinions on my new book cover. Too simple? It is a psychological thriller. The title has a reference in a passage within the book alluding to a truly evil person having a black and dead heart.
