Am waiting. 'Wait, Jess!' said he, having just charged several times round Danebury hill fort after the dog. Still waiting... Wagging tail... Hoping...

I was just about to ask where I get my money back, but I think I'll join forces with Athelstone (if that's OK, mate?) I'm sure there'd still be a market for two rare first editions. In fact, *fiendish cackle* WW might be persuaded to buy them back (at a premium) in order to keep them off the open market. Laughing

Cool

I'll be waiting for the paper version...can't wait to see what everyone wrote and remind myself what I offered up!

Another one for the writing CV...Thank you Debi for giving us the opportunity - you're a star! Are you looking forward to the 2013 version later this year?!Wink

You and me Tony - top of the world!!!

On a more serious note - it doesn't matter at all. If there are corrections all you need to do is log on to your kindle account -> Manage My Kindle -> scroll through your book purchases -> hover over the Festival Book and select 'deliver to my...' and it will be re-delivered.

But that's for the benefit of anybody else in a similar position; I'm sure you knew anyway.

I'm just thinking on Whisks' blog on e book resales. Not that I would do any such thing but if you resell a rare misprunted version does your buyer get a corrected version or the rare, highly priced collectors edition.

I could affect someones retirement plans this. Money mouth

I'm frustrated too. Not so much by the corrections needed, more that people keep talking to me on the train to work so I can't get on and read it.

Sorry Debi if finding it late yesterday prompted a false startFrown

This is it. Properly it. The 'delgates' typo is the only thing left to be sorted.

It's been a huge learning curve as neither the WW peeps nor I have ever done e-book formatting. To expand: this is what our Nikki has said:

We had to change all of the font, formatting and index stuff as it was causing the repetition problem and I just didn't have the time or experience to spend days over it so we decided to try and keep it as simple as possible. Hence no index links to the sections. I think if we had known what we know now we probably would not have attempted this without a knowledge and understanding of the process, or at least some guidance!

I'm sorry that we cannot improve the opening section and index but at least it is working properly now. With regards to the text and enlarged font that was how it was formatted when it came to me and I converted it into the e-book. It may be that some 'font' stuff you put in reacted with the e-book formatting and caused it....it is possible! So, apart from the lead in fonts and the index all should be well. I have updated the 'delgates' on the description so in time.........


I think it's still a thing of beauty and something to be proud of. I hope you all agree! Now tell everyone and share that link! Laughing

I can't emphasise enough that it's now down to you all to help to promote the book. This is part of the reality of being published. Cool If everyone whose words are in the book plays their part in promoting it on here, blogs, Facebook, Twitter, real-life-word-of-mouth etc you'll ensure the widest possible readership for your words and will get your names out there. And that's the whole point, eh?

This is our gift to all of you. Kiss Enjoy.
