Converting Paperbacks from Createspace to Amazon

I've got over 30 books in paperback.  I've been with Createspace, KDP and Smashwords from the beginning.  Now Createspace is closing down.  Amazon started it and is folding it back into Amazon. I've tried the Amazon paperbacks and the process is about the same as Createspace and the quality is there as well.  Changing from Createspace … Continue reading Converting Paperbacks from Createspace to Amazon

Back to Couponing and Crocheting and Publishing

Saturday afternoon I spent a chunk of time clipping coupons - for myself, my sister, and my daughters.  For the first time in nearly six weeks, I made a grocery list based on my apps and coupons. Ken went grocery shopping early on Sunday as he usually does.  He overspent by a little but I … Continue reading Back to Couponing and Crocheting and Publishing

Do I Gotta?

Last night I finished the manuscript I was working on.  I wrote about 15,000 words yesterday.  It was a good day. After I finished I was tired and rung out (like I normally get after a manuscript) and opted for a little tv.  I watched an episode of NCIS LA and Person of Interest.  I … Continue reading Do I Gotta?

Technical Difficulties

Every day this week I’ve worked on cleaning up images and getting the document ready for print format.  Unfortunately I’ve had technical difficulties.  First I had to learn how to change the dpi (dots per inch) of each image.  Fortunately it was fairly simple once I had the right program.  Second I had to take … Continue reading Technical Difficulties

Moon Affirmations on Amazon!

Last night I had Moon Affirmations go through final approval for Smashwords.  This means I'm able to use the same file - with a few adjustments - submit to KDP which is the e-publisher for Amazon.  After an hour or so working on it, I submitted it last night and now it is available on … Continue reading Moon Affirmations on Amazon!
