Createspace was daunting. First, you create an account. Then, you deal with filling out forms, U.S. taxes, uploading the interior of the book, adding the cover, establishing a price and determining which sales channels you want to use.
Every time you upload a file (well, every time I uploaded a file) it told me there were "issues." And, of course, there were. Lots of 'em.
In this process I learned to embed fonts in a pdf and that I had also, somehow, pasted in the wrong ISBN number. Good Lord.
I'm on the fourth upload, and this time, it found no issues. Am I almost there? in print? It's all very well to publish an ebook, but it sure doesn't seem real (to a relatively old fart) until you get the print edition out there. In your hand.
Soon, I think.
