As soon as I get this @#%^&!! paperback formatted, I’m going to host a GoodReads giveaway for some signed copies – and you are all welcome to enter!
Actually, formatting a paperback is pretty simple. (I’ve done it a few times before.)
THIS time, I tried to get fancy and messed up. I went with a smaller size but used the larger template – oops. I tried to add cute headers that would have my name on one side and the title on the other – and I messed them up. And my page numbers kept disappearing.
Oh, and don’t even get me started about ghost pages. They haunt me still. But I got rid of them. Eventually. (Thank you, Allison!)

Yes, I know many of you already know that.
Some of my blog readers are new. This ad is for them.
Then you know how it goes from there. Whenever I tried to fix something, I created another mistake somewhere else.
Oh, and I finally realized my margins were wrong! Not sure how that happened.
All of which isn’t to say formatting paperbacks is hard. It isn’t! I just kinda tried too many new tricks at once. But the result is well worth it. The paperback rocks. So, stay tuned for that GoodReads signed paperback promotion. I hope you win.
But that made me think…
This is a promotion I thought up. Maybe I should ask you guys what kind of stuff YOU like.
What kind promotions have you participated in or heard of as a READER reader that you enjoyed?
Or as an author, what was successful?
Let me know what stuff you like! Maybe I can do them!
