I hope everyone is having a fabulous week!

I have a couple spots left for proofreading projects in early December so if anyone is in need of a read, please feel free to get in touch. (And don't forget to mention you found me here for my new client discount of 10% off your first book! ;))

Thanks for your consideration!

I updated my print cover on Monday (11/20). I had to launch the previewer to approve the change. I didn't have any problems. I'm using Safari.

Do you know what they did about it, Stacy?

I haven't heard any updates, but I saw another author post about this (another baby product) in a FB group. Whatever's going on seems to be more widespread.
It always takes a long time for me. I usually just open another tab and browse KBoards.  :P

Hi everyone

On today's blog, "Evan Dunstan is Back in A Toxic Craft!"

I've never figured it out. I just know that I get one about Amanda's books about every other day.
Lol. Did you get one for The Chupacabra Catastrophe? Iím still waiting for that one to go out.

I wonder if there's going to be any special Black Friday deals on ... you know ... really great software? *wink* *wink*
Hi there. I just wanted to offer a little feedback on the way you've posted your books here. I find the watermarks to be too distracting for me to even judge what I think of a cover, and because of that, I skim right past all of them without really even considering them. I understand that artists watermark to protect their work from art theft, but in the case of premade covers, I really think that's an unnecessary protection. I'm pretty sure no one would use a book with "your name" and "your title" as their book cover, and they're far too small to be used as such anyway. But for authors looking at them as potentially something to buy, the watermarks--at least, I personally find--are way too distracting to the image to consider.
Action needed for me has been having to re-upload the PDF ad JPG files. Before I do that, I delist the book entirely, re-upload, and then make available again.

I loaded up 10 books today and all were live within about a minute. Only one wasn't and was "processing." Just checked and that one is live, too. Seems pretty simple, but they need some flags (like Apple) thay show you're missing basic info - like BISAC.  :P
Hmn... seems sensible... A week without also boughts seems like a killer for a new release though. I'm hoping for Amazon to take over adverting (internal traffic) at some point. The sooner also boughts kick in, the sooner my rankings will go up again....
I think most people would feel the same way. My sales volume on my last new release wasn't as big as yours, but at the time I thought the also-boughts were taking too long to show up.

Another thing that can really slow a new release is that the Look Inside sometimes takes three or four days to populate after the page is live. At least you didn't have that problem.
