We’ve managed to lock Scott back in his freezer, but because he shared our book trailer on Twitter, we now have to go capture a doctor for him. He wants Baked brain Alaska for tea. Why did we agree to this? Oh yes, because we wanted him to tweet about our book trailer. You read right. It’s done! You can watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8BYiu3PRTE let us know what you think.
With our book trailer out of the way, we could concentrate on formatting. We’ve been dreading it the same way people dread going to the dentist’s. We were expecting the pain and blood loss of a tooth extraction, but it was more like a check up. With no fillings 😀 Formatting isn’t as hard as we feared – there’s just a lot of steps. The best advice we can give is to download the Smashwords style guide. It explains every step in an easy to follow way. We then tried uploading it to Amazon, to see if there were any errors. There were – we hadn’t saved it in HTML format. So word of advice – for Amazon, save it as web page, filtered. For Smashwords, it’s .doc. We haven’t tried uploading it to Smashwords, but we will. That’s usually where the problems lie, if other authors are to be believed. We’ll upload it a few days before Valentine’s, just to give us breathing space to correct any formatting errors.
