If you’ve been reading my Facebook feed and some of my recent posts, you know that I’ve had 4 books Suppressed by Amazon Createspace’s Content Validation Request Team. Basically, if they find your book published “elsewhere,” even though the Member agreement with Amazon is non-exclusive, they prevent you and Createspace’s everyday customer service from accessing those book files while they ask you to prove you actually own the copyright.
The process is simple, but it is aggravating and it has caused a major delay in my process because I am in danger of being Suppressed even if I make a minor change to my books to add a promotion for my newest book.
On the bright side, I did publish Soulbright (Otherworld #2) with a final word count of 114, 712 and 452 pages. It has been published in both Kindle and paperback editions.
My mass-market (6×9) paperback edition of Johnny Came Home was likewise published and existing covers for the trade (7×10) paperback and Kindle were updated as well.
In the meantime, I have been working on Blindsight (formerly Mind’s Eye) and Dreadknights 2. I also named the next Copper Gallows adventure Corpus Dracon (Otherworld #4)
Dreadknights 2 is up to 36,943 words, meaning that it is only 3000 words shy of the full novel mark. The story is developing nicely, but I am not sure there will be a Dreadknights 3 now.
Blindsight (Otherworld #3) clocks in at 78,619 words so far.
