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.

Silently Screaming!!

Both books have went live as eBooks on various sites!  Willow Travels the World is a live on NOOK  and iBooks!  Willow Visits Her Friends is a live on Kobo and iBooks!

Everyone has already went to bed here and I am barely managing to not run and shake them all to tell them the good news!!!!  I am really pleased I went with Smashwords and took the time to format using their guide.

Willow Visits Her Friends has been approved into Smashwords Premium Program!  It took a little longer for it to get reviewed for this but it has successfully passed and has been included in the program.  Now we just wait and see if Nook, Apple or Kobo pass it and place it on their eBook eStores.
