pending…

stuart kurth 002Having never done it before, but thinking it couldn’t be all that hard, Kode and I set about uploading ┬áSerabella to the Kindle store. Several hours of witless confusion later, and we had not only uploaded it, we’d uploaded two! It seems as though the good people of KDP wanted to make the process as complicated as possible, in an attempt to weed out the muppets from their database. If it wasn’t for Kode, that category would’ve had a new member. Still, we got there in the end. Sort of. Turns out its a good idea to have chapter selections on your device. Which needed to be done in the original document. Added to that, I came across a few errors that had been previously missed on prior edits. All of this means that, while the book went up onto Kindle, it was still a flawed edition, and currently we are still pending. Work continues as I go through the book on my device, hunting down and murdering the last (hopefully) of the typos.

As I’m poor/stingy/cheap, I have been editing the work all by my lonesome, and the inevitable bogey will have eluded my attention. I’ve come to a new found admiration and respect for the humble editor through doing this, however there will most likely be the odd thing I’ve missed. Without fail, I’ll come across this in due course, or be told in no uncertain terms about it by an irate reader…
