Okay, not all the things, but a lot of the things.
I finally made the time to publish A Brief History yesterday, as I may have mentioned in yesterday’s post. (You also may have seen the book post I did. Spoilers, huh?)
I published the Create Space version first. Then I went and published the Kindle version, except apparently I quite forgot to run some sections through Grammarly, because there were 14 spelling errors, and nine of those were valid errors. So I fixed those in all the different manuscript versions (there are three), finished publishing the Kindle version, then went back and submitted the Create Space version again, which means a 24-hour wait for that to get approved.
Then, I went off to Smashwords and got everything all ready before I realized I needed to create another Ghost Author account. So I did that, then redid all the work I’d lost (it’s not much – Smashwords is so very easy once you’ve got the formatting down).
Finally, Nook Press (Barnes & Noble). So for a while, I was publishing ebooks over there but with Space Cats, I just did the print. But then when I was fixing links on the Space Cats post, I realized both the ebook and the print book were showing up on BN.com. Turns out it must be that my Smashwords copy is linking with the print copy I did over there. That’s really great, actually, and saves me a bit of work. BN is already a pain because I need to reformat both my interior files and my cover files because their paper is a teeny bit lighter than Create Space.
After that, I didn’t have the energy to write much, but I did hack out a few words before and in bed.
139 fiction words, 953 total words
Most of those words being the A Brief History post. And now that it’s up for sale, I need to decide whether I update every A to Z post with the book links, or whether I remove the posts altogether. I actually need opinions on that, for whoever reads this far. I’ll probably ask on FB too, so if you see that, don’t feel like you need to reply twice.
Thanks for reading! Today is editing on 003 (still has no title – tsk) so I can get that up for sale, too. It’s been too long. Bad Nicki.
