Every time I had that problem eventually (usually in 3 or4 hours) it would dawn on me to just google it like I do everything else and find someone's video tutorial that would give me step by step instructions on how to format my book for said company. Like I said I blame it on the lack of caffeine and sleep deprivation, but it took me almost a week and 16 tries to finally think about googling a tutorial. However once I did I found an awesome one the gave me tips that I had no idea about. The guys name is Paul Salvette, and he is awesome. So before you decide to attempt to publish an ebook with smashwords save yourself some heartache and a headache and go to his website first http://www.paulsalvette.com . Follow his video tutorial step by step (and download Notepad++ if you don't already have it). This will save you so much time because smashwords meat grinder is no joke. They don't let anything through.
So now that my book has gone to the premium status with smashwords my book will be available soon on iBookstore, Sony, Page Foundry, and Diesel (hopefully by the end of next week. I'll keep you posted.) I am still waiting on Google Books *sighs* Perhaps someday it will be available there too only time will tell. Next week the kiddies go back to school (I am positively vibrating with excitement over this. ) so that means I can finally throw myself into working on Shift. The way this book had been playing out in my head I cannot wait to get it down on paper. After I have finished writing Shift my next project will be a book I wrote about 4 years ago tentatively entitled Passion's Storm .
I have decided that my books will go in this order Romance novel ,Series novel, Romance, Series, etc. I am doing it this way because my Series books actually require a lot more effort than just writing a romance so they need a lot me time and work. And this schedule allows me a break. With that being said it is 3 a.m. and I really should be getting some sleep Night All or is it Morning. Music To sleep by.
