After meeting with my photographer, yesterday.
He took 99% of the photos.
There were a couple of minor changes I needed to make to the book.
The original “Moment of Moo”, has passed. No worries, it is still floating around like cloud wisps!
To assure that anyone who purchases a book. (All million of you, I’m dreaming! 😁) receives a quality manuscript, I’m doing a touch of editing!
Feeling anxious, I awoke at 2:30am. Hopped into the program to do my “quick” fix.
Ha! Ha! Ha! 🤣🤣🤣
In self-publishing “quick fix”, is not going to be in your vocabulary!
Beware any photos, that have a setting of BOLD!
For some reason, when I re-uploaded my file. Suddenly photos that were perfectly fine, NOW, extended into my margins!
Thankfully, Amazon tells you which pages have photos that need to be re-sized. They include a bright red exclamation point on those that need adjusting. (LOVE THIS!)
That was the easy part!
Stumped, I reopened my original word doc.
I went in and verified that my margins and gutter settings had NOT changed.
They had not! PHEW!
The only thing I noticed was hovering over some of the pics, they showed as BOLD faced type.
I un-clicked that setting, but slightly resized my photos too.
Better safe than sorry.
I had to re-upload three times. Once, Amazon bombed on me. Oops!
I pushed on through, started my upload again!
Ahhhh, sweet success!
Now, there are two different pages, with the final line, slightly shifted to the left???
The pages that originally had the problem are fixed.
It’s 3 hours and 3/4 of a pot of coffee later.
My paperback is live, with updates under review.
This review can take 72 hours. I like the fact they do a double check!
At this time, I had not touched the kindle. (Mine is not linked to my book)
I have decided to take it offline! 🤔
My gift worthy Coffee book really needs to be held and viewed with a relaxing cup of tea or afternoon toddy.
I just noticed, Where the Cows Still Play, is ranked #8 out of 100 in Amazon’s New releases in Northeast US Travel Guides!
If you have never been to the US, or New England this would be a fantastic way to visit. (No plane ticket required!)
Off I go, for fresh coffee.
🎶 ☕️ 🎶
NOW as promised…
Made of wood
I would love to hear
Their tales of all
The things they’ve seen,
Throughout those years they stood.
Wouldn’t it be great to hear?
An old bridge, spin one
If only that they could.
Happy Sunday all!
Kind Regards and wishing you the best day – K
