I thought that the e-book should have been the easiest part to get up and running, but unfortunately, I didn't know that my book designer worked in the opposite direction. It's okay, though. I've gotten the final product, and it turned out really well, from what I can tell. The only thing is that I've uploaded it twice and it's come back with errors both times! Fricken Frack!
And since I'm new to this side of things, that "true" self-publishing that some folks seem to be bent on bragging about, I'm still green and rough around the edges. I don't have a clue what's taking so long to validate a file that the "validator" said was successful. Geez Louise.
I'm almost afraid to go back to the website and check on the status. I'm supposed to get a "good to go" email when the e-proof is ready for review and approval, and so far, I haven't gotten that. And two days of "The title has been rejected" with no freakin' discernible reason why is driving me a little nuts.
Never have been a patient person, and this is the worst feeling. Waiting. Waiting. ARggggh!
But, I'm living and learning. By the time I get around to publishing future projects, for myself and others, I'll know a lot more about what to do when and what not to do at all. Winning! Sort of.
