Bump in progress

Per suggestion as I mentioned a few days ago I changed the cover of the second Willow book, Willow Travels the World.  I thought this would be no big deal, change the cover, submit and go about my merry way.  Well for some reason this simple change has now got the book flagged for having an ePub error, ‘calibre_toc_2’, there is more to it but that’s not the important part.  Oddly enough it always had that ePub error, actually both books do when I ran them through the ePub check.  So I am confused as to why suddenly it halts our re-inclusion with the new cover into the Premium Program with Smashwords.  I don’t know anything about ePub or it’s errors but ‘toc’ I have noticed usually means table of contents, I don’t even have one.  So, I have no idea how to fix an error on something I don’t even have.  What I gather it’s a malfunctioning link and since I have no ‘toc’ links I went ahead and checked all my hyper links to my social media and they all are working correctly.  I resubmitted it as an ePub file so wish me luck.  My next move will be just to resubmit the previous version that got expectance and hope it sneaks through like it did before.  At least the book is still available in the other cover on Smashwords distribution sites like iBooks, Kobo and Nook.  The new cover is available on Kindle but not in paperback yet, it’s in the works with CreateSpace for distribution on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc..  Already submitted, approved and checked.

Made it!

Willow Travels the World finally made it to Kobo.  I checked and checked so I gave it a rest for a few days and just saw it on there tonight.  Bree is already talking about the next adventure for Willow and I have an idea or two too.

Progress!

Willow Travels the World has been approved into Smashwords Premium Program! This may lead to Nook, iBooks, Kobo and more! This was no easy feat, I had to give up on Kindle through this route to achieve this but we did Kindle Direct so you can still find us there.

Exciting News!

Willow Visits Her Friends is now available through Smashwords!  I am hoping this opens up a lot more distributors for Brianna’s books.  Also Willow Travels the World is now available on Amazon in paperback!

I must admit with every step forward I make in this endeavor to help Brianna make a book, now two, I am realizing how much work goes into your book after you write it, if you publish on your own.  Even using services like CreateSpace and Smashwords.  Terms of Agreements sometimes take all afternoon to read, then there is the reformatting from your print version to an eBook compilable file and then the waiting to find out if it was approved to go live after all the time and energy you have all ready invested.  I have a new found respect for the process.
