I'm Nearly Finished the Final Draft
It's been quite a ride...and it's not over yet. Did you know that ISBN numbers you see on the copyright page of your favorite and not so favorite books aren't free? They cost about $125 each. And yes, I took the plunge and bought one.
Also, did you know that you have to remove page numbers from manuscripts before submitting them in an eBook format? I found that out the hard way.
There is also no guarantee that Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing will accept my manuscript (and if they don't, I am royally screwed.) Yes, according to the folks over at Amazon KDP, eBook manuscripts are scrutinized before they are allowed to go on sale at Amazon. I have no idea how thoroughly they check (considering some of the crap sold at Amazon) but this is what their FAQ page says, anyway.
Off to collapse. Muse rode me hard and put me away wet.
