Re: [D2D] New POD for paperbacks

Hi Stacey and Sarah,
I have since learned that D2D will not have their own print facilities, that they will be outsourcing, most likely, to IS. No point in using them in that scenario. More advantageous to go directly through IS for me.

[D2D] New POD for paperbacks

Draft 2 Digital have announced alpha testing of their new program for paperbacks. I will be very interested to see if they ship proofs and author copies to Australia. I will be using IS for my next three novels(all due for release in the next 2-3 months), as I have purchased a block of ten ISBNs and...

Re: [warning move CS to KDP] different set of rules

You are quite right. Some of the CS generated material is not compatible with KDP like a cover made with CS's Cover Creator. However, it is purportedly, only a problem if you access the files or make changes. Just recently, I sold three paperbacks through KDP after having my files transferred. I am ...

Re: [spammed private messages] Deleting private messages

I haven't come across the problem myself. Always managed to get rid of the messages. Mind you, as a Moderator, when I removed spam on the board for that day, the notifications/messages were deleted along with them. You may have to PM Walton if the problem persists. Moderators do not have access to y...

[KBOARDS] Refugees from Kboards

To members who have migrated here from KBoards. If you have asked the mods there to delete your account and your posts, apparently the mods are unable to perform that task completely. The information goes into a bin(storage). If you wish to have everything removed you are advised to do the following...

[Author Central] Reviews.

I have lost my few reviews from my Author Central account, yet they appear to remain with my listed books on their sale sites, so not panicking. Anyone else have this happen? Explanation given? I am wondering if my account with Book Report has anything to do with it. My reviews turned up there when ...

Re: [KBoards] New TOS

Like Leo, I too signed up here. Now I have to figure out how to delete my profile back on KBoards. Welcome djmills. I hope you find our forum helpful and informative. We have some very experienced authors/publishers here with a wealth of technical expertise or services to offer. I have let it be kn...

Re: [KBoards] New TOS

Welcome aboard Leo, glad to have you here. We may not be as sophisticated a forum as KB, but I really dislike the new TOS there. Like anything, it takes some time for things to get a move on. We have a great bunch of moderators here attempting to keep the spam in check every day. It does slip in unf...
