Writers' Cafe / Re: Smashwords question
« Last post by Perry Constantine on Today at 02:08:43 AM »
I had this happen to me, too. This may seem like a weird, illogical solution, but somehow it worked.

Initially, I had a folder labeled Front Matter and in this folder was my copyright page, title page, as well as my cover, and in the compile options, I had it set to add this entire folder as the front matter. On a whim, I decided to remove the image from the front matter folder, and in the compile, just selected the image to use as a cover. For some reason, Smashwords did accept this epub.

Another thing to consider, make sure your cover images are sized appropriately. Not only make sure that they're big enough, but also make sure they aren't too big. And make sure they're RGB and not CMYK.

Kat, there are lots of places cheaper than DC and New England. Just because London is in a bubble of massive proportions doesn't make NE or DC cheap. I like London, and spent 30 days there once upon a time in another warp. But London's weather is terrible and yet it has some of the most expensive real estate in the world.

Oh wow, I wasn't talking about London. A 2 bed terraced house is 3x as much in London.

No, a small house, with a small kitchen, probably little to no garden and no parking area - at least 100k in my city (Sheffield).

The average house price in the UK is £254k

Hey, I'm not starting a house price UK versus US. I've just always noticed that houses seem bigger in the US than in the UK, that's all. And you seem to get more for your money there.

I'm just depressed because I'm looking for a house with a limited budget. Terraces are fine, it's just the stairs are always so d*mn steep, and you end up living in converted attics for extra space.

Writers' Cafe / Self Publishing Podcast #103 is up
« Last post by Mark E. Cooper on Today at 01:54:47 AM »
Hey guys, have any of you heard or used Thunderclap? Fast FWD to 21m17s to hear the guys talk about it.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WExCJGbbimg" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WExCJGbbimg</a>

The SPP guys are using it for their Fiction Unboxed idea, but it won't "fire" unless they get 500 people to use it. I don't mind sending a tweet for this. If you guys feel that you can support the idea, please have a look and maybe add to the effort? If you want to have a look into the concept (I had never heard of it before) you can see it at http://www.selfpublishingpodcast.com/thunderclap

I am thinking this would be VERY good for those of you doing multi author boxsets, or releasing something on a known date.
