So, Outskirts Press is awesome and published my book up on Kindle lickey-split! I heart Outskirts. I really do. They're so fast!
I thought one of the pluses of being up on Kindle would be that I could fix all the horribly embarrassing errors I had left in the book when I published it originally (such as spelling sheath "shief"--did you know Word wouldn't catch that as a misspelling? 'cause... I didn't...). So I went into the Kindle author bookshelf to download the book so I could happily update the HTML file...
And lo and behold, Outskirts locked the file.
I cannot update it.
I tried like mad to download the file, to no avail. It is locked to me. I can't fix it. I can't update it. It's as locked as my book.
So, the book is on Kindle. It's .99. But I'm not announcing it because... Let's face it... It's kind of embarrassing.
Sadly, it looks like I'm just going to have to suck it up and contact Outskirts and ask them to give me an estimate on replacing the manuscript. (They give you a cost estimate on "updating" the book post-publication on a case-by-case basis, I assume based on the length of your book and how much effort it's going to take them to update it.) But if I'm going to update the misspellings, I'm just going to update/revise the whole damn book. There are so many things I want to fix...
UGH. How frustrating... /sigh
So, if you don't mind some terribly misspelled words, give the book a shot. Hey--it's only .99 cents, right? ;)
