After several days of browser crashes, cursing, and hair-pulling, the files are finally uploaded and pending review on Createspace. The primary issue revolved around images. For some reason, the automatic reviewer insisted that my 600 dpi, uncompressed, unmodified, images were 4 dpi. 4?? How is that even possible?
Anyway, I finally decided to ignore the flaky viewer and just send the file on for review. Hopefully, human eyeballs will settle the matter and things can move forward. Fingers crossed.
Having never used this service, I will certainly be ordering a proof copy. If all goes well, then the print version should be available shortly thereafter. -whew- Who knew publishing could be so difficult?
On the bright side, I’ve learned a lot on this project. I can only hope that the next one will be much easier as a result.
Cya’ next time.
