Hello Gentle Reader!
This is your official warning that with Amazon closing Createspace, my indie print books may be in limbo for a bit.
If you specifically like these print editions best, then you should buy now.
Print Books Possibly Effected
- Romancing the Inventor
- Romancing the Werewolf
- Poison or Protect
- How to Marry a Werewolf
- Competence (UK edition)
- The Sumage Solution
I don’t know how long, or honestly if there will be issues. I don’t know which books might be effected, or none, or all. I haven’t started the transfer or updates yet because DEADLINES. But I do know it won’t be simple or easy, because this is Amazon and nothing is ever simple or easy with them.
However there are a few things I can tell you…
What’s Changing Visually?
Not a whole lot. I’ll hope to be sprucing up covers & fixing typos and some internal layouts for official second editions. Ingram will continue to distribute the first editions.
For the covers, I’ll be making sure the spines match and fixing some cover spacing arrangement and darkness issues. Same thing with the internal layouts and text, I hope. Just basically giving them all a nice clean update. No actual art or photos will change.
Even minor, it’s costly and time consuming so that’s why there may be a bit of a hiatus.
You may not be able to get the PRINT book from Amazon.
Distribution and price will be effected to some territories of Amazon overseas. So if you are anywhere outside the USA and you buy my print books via Amazon you should buy them now.
REALLY, DO IT NOW.
Borderlands is always there for you, but if you insist on Amazon, I can not make any promises going forward.
I currently have no idea which overseas territories will be impacted. So you can panic if you like but I’ve given you the solution. Buy the print right now, before you may not be able to for a while, if ever.
Okay, yeah, doomy.
But put yourself in my shoes. I’m late on 3 projects at this juncture and I have to stop (YET AGAIN) to take DAYS to do this re-upload transfer mumbo jumbo. Amazon will always find a way to screw with authors. It’s their specialty. And yeah, I’m not my usual bubbly self about this. Because, frankly, arse-nozzle!
