Got the interior completed and uploaded last night. More clumps of hair out this morning trying to get the front/back covers done. At only 24 pages, there’s no ‘spine’ per se, so had to work around that. Then, the primitive graphics program I was using decided it was done for the day.
The nice thing about flat-panel screens is they go much further once they’ve cleared the glass of the window.
*ahem* After applying the typical IT solution (“Did you restart your computer?”), things were less bad. Images formatted, converted, uploaded. I’ve gone ahead and submitted them for review by CreateSpace, even though I’ve no blurb on the back cover, yet. I want one of their proof copies in my hand: until you’re holding a physical copy, you’ve no idea what stupid things you’ve screwed up (such as leaving page numbers out of my first novel; my then 11 year-old caught that one).
As always, I cannot thank Claudia Gadotti enough for her amazing illustrations. Please go to her place and lavish her with commissions!
