I got the first proof copy of my book a couple of weeks ago, and there were more than a few formatting errors, even though Createspace said everything was fine. It turns out that unless you have the formatting in mind when you create the document, there are going to have to be some adjustments made even after the document is uploaded and looks fine on the online proofer.
This is actually working out to my advantage though, as it has given me time to do another search for the title and subtitle, and I found that more than one series was using the series subtitle I had settled on, and one of those is also an urban fantasy. No worries, I have a backup. It’s not as cool, but that’s what happens when you take your time sometimes. It’s still a first novel, and I’m sure there are lots of goofs I am too close to see. (I’ll be adding a photo of the new cover to the book page for Bone Sliver shortly.)
With any luck, my beta readers will all be getting back to me soon with their thoughts. I want to give them plenty of time and not be a pest. Of course the waiting is killing me. Patience is not my strong suit.
It’s a weird place to be. Finished, and somehow not quite ready yet.
