Progress on Count Taka so far….
Well, the good news is that by dint of some wrestling with formatting, I’ve gotten the page count down by a significant fraction, meaning I will be able to set the book price at a decent $14.99. For a while there that was looking dicey.
The annoying news is that after several bouts of revision, they still weren’t happy with the cover. I thumped my head on the desk, said a few bad words, and sent them a hopefully polite email asking what was the problem, given the automated message was… not being clear.
Give the people working there credit. They actually responded on the same day, with an image of exactly where they say the problem is. To wit: title text not 0.5″ from the cover edge, as they measure it.
To which I can only say, argh.
So… I’ve forwarded the message, the pic, some cash, and my rueful remarks to the cover artist, asking for a revision to fix that. Hopefully now that we have a pic of where the problem is, this time will work.
I freely admit I have a headache.
So how ’bout a little music?
