Same here. Submitted my latest book on Friday. The book was in review until Sunday when they emailed me. I replied immediately but the strangest thing, they sent the same validation request email for the same book on Tuesday again. Havenít heard a thing yet.

Everyone, thank you so much for the feedback. I totally agree with the consensus on fonts. Guy Riessen, thanks for all the effort you put into your comments, greatly appreciated.

Introductions & Welcomes / New to kboards
« Last post by carlhackman on Today at 05:06:11 AM »
Hi, my name is Carl Hackman and I'm new to kboards. I'm a traditionally published author of fantasy fiction. At the moment I have 2 published items, a prequel short story and the first in a series of humorous fantasy novels. I have finished the next in the series and also another none related novel. I'm in the middle of my 4th and have the 3rd in the GERALD series plotted and it should be completed before the end of this year.

I love to chat with other authors and readers, and am looking forward to being active here at kboards.

Have a great day :)

Oh, that's frustrating! Hopefully they'll accept book 3 and do a big promo on book 1 to coincide with the launch :D

Thanks, Melanie, that's a nice thought - but who knows the mysterious ways of Kindle Scout/Press?

Congrats! The cool thing about doing a freebie when you're all in for KU is seeing the number of page reads skyrocket. Enjoy the ride!

Even on the 99 cent deal I did, the page reads have gone way up.  Though my Bestseller tag only lasted 3 days.   :(  I was sad to see it go.

I lost five altogether yesterday, if you include one on an anthology I'm in.  All my books are in Select.

Thank you everyone, this has been REALLY helpful. As an indi writer maybe the hardest thing is feeling alone, so it's good to feel like you're not! I will be telling the KS today, and announcing it on FB etc. I will also experiment with AMS (I'm not actually sure what it stands for!) but I will keep it at 99c (down from the official price of 2.99). And yes, I am working on the next!

Alex, I just gave you a short mention in my newsletter. Not sure if it'll help, but I tried. Best of luck!

CreateSpace seems to be a black hole.

I can't get a response from their content team or their support team.

My book has been blocked since Sunday and I've heard nothing about why, or what I can do to resolve the issue.

I try not to let my email address get into the hands of potential readers. I've occasionally had quite entertaining discussions about this kind of thing on my author page on Facebook, though. Not in a bad way!
