I’ve been busy with work and travel lately that I haven’t been able to post about this, but I’m super excited to have more stories to share with you!
I’m currently waiting on the first print version of my book to arrive so I can check it for errors. I received a notification that it has been shipped, so I lie in wait.
My major worry… that the whole thing is backward. The digital proof I was sent looked that way, but I thought: “Maybe it’s going to look different once it’s printed. How could they possibly have flipped my entire file? Especially when I worked with the typesetter who knew what she was doing?”
Revisions would cost extra and delay my release. So fingers are majorly crossed!
I’m stuck in processing limbo with IngramSpark in regards to my eBook. I ordered a print version so I can look it over and make sure all is well in a physical copy, but I swore the eBook would take less time.
Mama always taught me not to swear…
I’m finding IngramSpark’s support team a hit or a miss. I’m not sure where they’re based out of, but first, they locked me out of my original account, I made a new one – asked to have my password reset for the original account… and they reset it for my recovery account instead. Fine, ok moved forward. I upload my book and, after about a week or so, I’m still seeing this:
I reached out to the support team after looking through the FAQs to find out what this might mean and got this answer:
When I asked what she meant by “print” in regards to an eBook I did not receive a reply. And I still haven’t received an email detailing what issues they’re having with the files… that I uploaded on January 9th…
Guess I jumped the gun on thinking this would be happening soon! Anyone else ever used this platform to self-publish??
Bit of a delay with the print release of my book. Looks like it’ll be closer to Feb. 1, 2021. Hopefully, the eBook will be ready soon!
I added a new page to the menu at the top of my homepage for information on my book of poetry Word Bath. I’ll be updating that page as I get closer to my publication date of January 15, 2022! I’ll also be posting updates on my Instagram @dukeofverse.
