I don't know how you can honestly say releasing a new book in the present climate is stressful. I just released the first book in a new series, and it started with a ranking of 4.8 million in the Kindle Store. Couldn't have been easier.

LOL - I didn't know it went that low. 
Right going on one week, plus.

Of course, that's when they admitted a problem, not when the problems began. I suppose that they got fed up with all the author emails and wanted them to stop. Maybe we should all send an email asking when they are going to fix it and copy Jeff in on it just to drive them bat crazy.

You know what I hate about gatekeepers? They don't like what I like.

Gatekeepers shunned my favorite band for decades until they got so popular with the fans that they had to be let into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. (Rush).

Gatekeepers spent most of my childhood telling me that I shouldn't be reading comic books or fantasy or science fiction books or playing roleplaying games, that I should be reading "real" books.

Gatekeepers always tried to mock my favorite shows and movies.

The last thing we need are more gatekeepers.

I said I was shy.  :) I do have my website though!

@Alexa: I'd be glad to join in again on some cross promos. I have a small list but they open up quite a bit of my stuff. I will check out Awesome Gang, too.

I am planning on writing longer (am doing so right now). I won't do another novella series. Novellas would be nice as tie-ins or in between novels. I just haven't seen a lot of interest in them.

Update 1. I did a restart with the menu option restart. After that it would connect and say "checking" and then "no new items" in spite of there being about 6 items I know were bought after the last sync so they should download. I'm going to try a hold down the button restart and see if that does anything different than a menu option restart.

Update 2. I did a "hold the button restart". Same results. It connects and says checking and then no items found. Prior to doing this I went into manage content and checked 6 new items and said deliver them even though I already said deliver them when I clicked to buy them. It's beginning to look like it's going to be either "reset" or return for repair. Not happy with either of those ideas.

I remember having a similar problem once. It was a long time ago now, but I seem to think my problem was the PDF converter that I'd used, and I'm going to guess that it could be causing your problem, too.
When saving as PDF you need to make sure to click the Options and check the ISO blah blah compliant (PDF/A) check box in Word.

Great price, so not a complaint, I didn't see anything in Sci-fi I would probably use.  At the moment anyways.
