Well Hello CreateSpace! I Think.
I'm happy to say my book is selling, just checked and sold another one - yay! However, I have several family members who are elderly and aren't into anything online and they want a copy of my book. So once again after doing some research, Amazon has CreateSpace, a place where you can upload your novel and order copies and the price is fair. I was very happy, even though I had to reformat my book again. Kindle formats all books their way, but with CreateSpace you must send them a finished book, including the cover and back page. So I'm almost done formatting, just trying to decide where I want to put the page numbers when I ran into a snag. I have to send the book as a pdf. I have no way to do that, my daughter already downloaded the trial version of Adobe Photoshop and it's expired so can't use that. I can use Adobe Reader, it directs me to a place that I can use and I'm thinking of doing that, or I can download CutePDF and use that. I will have to look both over again before deciding. If I use the reader, I have to upload the file and get it back from them and I don't really like that idea, so I'm leaning toward CutePDF. Well, will let you know how it all goes. Think I'm going to watch a quick YouTube video on uploading to CreateSpace as well so I don't miss anything there.
