Hard Copies are Hard

Good Morning all!

I finally received my Author’s Copy of Preservation, and I am somewhat disappointed to say the least. When I originally published Purpose, the software the Amazon used was called CreateSpace. I had minimal issues and was able to publish relatively quickly and without delay. However, they took down CreateSpace and integrated it into KDP where everything has to be uploaded separately.

But for some reason, when I checked the Preview of my 2nd book, prior to publishing, it appeared standard. I was concerned that the page count was only 187 considering it was only 10K words less than the 1st (with 357 pages after single spacing). So I pushed it through and waited. Unfortunately, you never really know how it’s going to turn out until you receive the physically copy.

My copy was delivered yesterday evening. The cover looked amazing and lined up great! But the moment I opened the book, my heart sank. For some reason, the size font is like 8 or 10, not 12. It is so small that it would make sense for a book with 1,000 pages, but not for mine. I have already struggled with this Amazon software because it is so finicky and frustrating (and some other words that begin with the letter “f”). What do I have to do tonight? Fix it and hope that size 12 is the size that I need to match Purpose.
