Re: [INSPIRATION IN BOOK COVERS] Hello hello

Hi Lily, welcome to the forum. Great covers. You should also include a link in your signature or your post to your website, to allow us to peruse your covers. I assume you have prices on there as well?
Joe.

Re: [THANK YOU] Our 1 year anniversary

Happy birthday/anniversary to us. Yeah, we have some spam, heavy on weekends I find, but the fact that we can get rid it ourselves, counts for a lot. No fear of moderation or account block-outs and such. Just zap em, and ban em. I hardly visit Createspace, and when I do, it is either a wall of spam,...

Re: [TRADEMARK] Precedent furor.

Yes, I think the authors targeted by Ms. Hopkins have some pretty heavy hitters in their corner. She will not get away with it, and her reputation has been besmirched as a result of her cavalier(cocky?) attitude. Many romance readers have scrubbed her name from their TR lists. She is copping a shell...

[TRADEMARK] Precedent furor.

For those who are unaware, there is a long thread on KBoards regarding a romance author TMing the word COCKY and the style she uses on her covers. It has rightfully gained her the backlash of the writing community in that the trademark of common words should not be allowed. If successful there will ...

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

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...
