I uploaded Chivalry onto Nook in hopes that their print on demand service is easier to figure out, but alas, it is the exact same process as Amazon/CreateSpace. The process consists of me uploading the manuscript, a cover, filling out all the info and numbers, then waiting two days to be told there is an error. The cover fits the template, so I’m not sure what else to do, and of course, they do not have help with these things. Instead, their answer in the FAQ is to make a whole new cover with their service. If I do that, surely, it will work. I see how it is.
BUT, it is on Nook now! Yay!
Well, I did it. I published it. I’m still trying to figure out how to get the print copy to happen with CreateSpace (Amazon’s print on demand service). This is all very confusing. I just want to hit “publish” and be done with it, sit back, await the funds in my account. Yeah, right. Fortunately, I have some friends who have some experience, but I really hate bothering them with all my stupid questions. I can’t even figure out how to get a copy of the printed book so I can autograph it for someone. Maybe I’m too old for this.
At the very least, my main goal has been accomplished, and that’s to put the story out there for horse racing lovers to read. It’ll mostly be older teens and young adults reading, and the ones in the racing business at that age are so busy, they rarely have time to read. But it’s there if they want it, nonetheless.
