8: Eight-word Poems Update

Files for the e-book editions have been uploaded to Smashwords and Kindle Direct Publishing for review. I have also uploaded a slightly revised interior to IngramSpark, since I found a numbering error as I was formatting the e-book documents—just the excuse I needed to fix the remaining seven-word poem (which is now eight), and make [...]

8: Eight-word Poems—proofs

Finally got the printed proofs today. IngramSpark made a slight change to their proofing procedure, so now you have to approve the e-proof before you can order printed copies—had I known this, I would not have ended up waiting so long to get my proofs. Anyway… Overall, it looks good. I did have to make [...]

Granted, choosing to include all of the poems from this particular writing challenge made that part of the [...]

8: Eight-word Poems submitted for proofing

I have already uploaded the interior and book cover PDFs for review; the next step will be proofing. I have set the publication/on-sale date for October 20th; I think this will give me enough [...]
