KDP and not so much...

Feb. 19th, 2019 | 05:40 pm
I'm here: lake
Feeling...: aggravatedaggravated

Like a lot of writers I have books on amazon that used to be through create space. All well and good. Except now create space is no more and KDP has taken over. Today I received an email from amazon telling me they couldn't pay me for my sales. So, of course I followed the links to see what the problem is.

Now, you need to understand that create space has been gone for more than 6 months, I was told existing work would simply migrate - seamless cross platform migration blah blah. Yeah, not so much.

When I went on KDP today I found exactly 1 title listed and only because it was an ebook. It is the ONLY ebook I had on create space so what amazon did was migrate the ebooks, not the paperbacks. I manually migrated the paperbacks and then discovered that the ebook they migrated had mysteriously lost its print version. So, that sent me looking for my Books in Print folder which had mysteriously vanished from my desktop. Converging electronic mischief at work. I searched it out. And then I'm looking for my cover art. I think I have it, but, because of this fuckaroo I will now order a copy of every title to check to see that they are printing out properly in this new format. I'm so not impressed.

Not only did KDP not migrate my books properly, they migrated payment data that was 5 years old. See, I had kept up my create space prior to this merge - that data didn't migrate. So I had to manually update my payment info, again. Really? Come on amazon, you can do better than this. No, I'm not interested in you publishing my works as ebooks, it reduces my sales while preventing theft of my books. I prefer the reduction of theft.

Now I'm wondering what happened to the print version of my missing book and its ISBN. Do we really need these screw ups? All you had to do was transfer the current data. Really.

Here is my amazon link if you want to order a book. Holler at me if you experience a screw up. https://www.amazon.com/F.R.R.-Mallory/e/B000APFVPE?ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_1&qid=1550626621&sr=8-1

I am considering embedding a blog into a new author website shortly. I guess it's time for that.

VANI Book Three

Jan. 25th, 2019 | 11:52 pm
Feeling...: contemplativecontemplative

Today I am at Chapter 14 of VANI Book Three.

This is the third book in the series that I've written starting in November of 2018 (NANOWRIMO) - they morphed quickly to a full experience. I am at 63,549 words today. Each book is averaging around 150k and I hope to have this one done in February.

My intention is to clean up and edit the first three and start sending them around before going into further books in the series.

Likely I will also attempt some short stories tied in to the same universe.

Mid-novel of V3

Jan. 22nd, 2019 | 09:57 am
I'm here: home
Feeling...: contemplativecontemplative

I have not been posting much here. I am always uncertain if that will change. Usually I seem to post here in spurts. This is a challenging week for me as I am facing a life stressor on Thursday, again. I am coping by writing on Book Three of Vani - I am at 43,980 words this morning and coming up on a very active section that overlaps Book Two at this point (so I know what is going to happen already) My character is upset and seeking an outlet for her rage. Her rage is based on the death of a dear friend by persons trying to kill her, not her friend. She feels guilty and angry and impotent. We shall see what happens :)

camping

I'm here: library
Feeling...: busybusy

Dear Friends,

If you've randomly found me here, I'm camping. Yes, me. What a year. Someday I'll post about it but I'm too deep in the muck at the moment to spill my guts.

Live an interesting life.

Be brave, too.
