7 December 2018 – It is time for an update. I thought the book would be ready to publish by now. I WAS ready, so I went back to Amazon Createspace (CS) to complete my task. It was then that I discovered that big changes had occurred in the last few months while I was furiously editing and proofreading. Amazon Createspace is going away, and all of their Print on Demand (POD) publishing will be done by Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP). That shouldn’t be a problem; BUT the book options have changed. The 8-1/2” x 11” book that I have formatted for CS, cannot be published by KDP. This was so upsetting; I looked for another POD publisher. After much searching and deliberating, I chose at this time to publish with KDP. This choice requires changing the dimensions of my book just slightly, BUT every page must be reformatted for the new dimensions.
I am hard at work, but I probably won’t meet my self-imposed Dec. 31 deadline. I do hope all is done in January. Stay tuned.
