Jake’s Story on iBooks, Nook, Sony Reader
I have been trying for a month to get Jake’s Story up on every e-reader, not Kindle, but it’s been a challenge. Smashwords is the company who distributes to all the other vendors and they keep rejecting my book because of formatting errors, they say. Last night and all today, I deleted every format for this story and pretty much started with a blank story – meaning, I needed to re: line-space, paragraph, indent, adjust font size… I think you get the point? Even after a million edits and one professional edit, it’s amazing how I still found mistakes in the book. There were conversations that began with a quote but didn’t end with a quote. There were many commas left out. I can see why legit publishing houses put a book through 5-7 different editors.
I also had the pleasure of having to clean out my refrigerator tonight, after a mound of dinner dishes were done, because a fresh mozzarella cheese tub somehow had a leak on the bottom and the rancid smell went everywhere. I had to throw away every bag of veggies and fruit and clean out every tray and bin. Aargh!
I tell you all this to get you ready for the bad news. Entwined has not seen a computer screen since last week. Edits have been halted and my gal who designs the book covers (who was out of the country till now), doesn’t think she can get a cover done before Christmas. BUT – the good news! I have several blogs written and am so excited with where this story is going. Wait till you meet Donovan! He’ll make his debut on Thursday. I think I’m more excited to reveal the storyline than you are to read it. Hope you all have a good rest of the night. Till we meet again in Max & Jane’s world on Thursday.
