Re: [Introduction] Halito! Hello!

G'day Ray, welcome to the forum. Having helped to edit a friend's book, who suffers from dyslexia, I sympathise with your plight. It is not easy for someone with that condition to write a book that others can read without the help of a very patient editor. I would never do it again, that's for sure....

Re: [Privacy policy] Do you have a privacy policy for your website?

While I have a contact me page that sends an email to my email address, I have no such things as you were told to have on either my author site or my business site.

Re: [INTRODUCTION] First timer trying to publish a book for Family

Yes, there are rumours, and elements of CS shutting down, staff being laid off, and KDP introducing paperbacks to their portfolio.

I am a big fan of CreateSpace for my paperbacks, Lulu for my hard covers, and KDP for my ebooks. I am more than satisfied with the qual...

It explains a lot about the rankings and such as well, namely; a loan of an ebook, even though not read, will cause a sudden spike in rankings. I have seen this occur many times.

Re: [CS INTERIOR REVIEWER] Question

If you simply cannot wait for the physical proof of the book to arrive, it is the next best thing as it shows you exactly how your book will look. I prefer to ...
