NOT A Fan of the New Ammy Proof Version

your humble and slightly miffed host

Got this in the mail today.

Will be sending it back.

I hate to be seen as a complainer. Life is good. But when we used to get proof copies of a paperback from CreateSpace, they were the EXACT thing people would get when they bought the book. Yes, they were stamped in the back that they were proof copies; that was part of the cool factor – if you gave one to somebody, they were getting inside stuff.

Ammy bought CS. I order proofs to see if the cover looks good. I almost NEVER do that!


This book rocks, the cover looks awesome except – that banner is kinda ugly – and it ruins the effect.


Imagine the Mona Lisa with a banner. It’s her, but do you get the full concept of what the Da Vinci was going for?

Pfft. Come on.

I wanna see if the colors look good and if the spacing works. I THINK it does, and I checked the computer screen closely, but the real version is always a little different.

The thing the buyer gets, that’s what I wanted to see. Not… not that.

00 BEST V 3 - 2

Anyway, it’s awesome (except for the crappy banner on all sides), and it’s an amazing book you can order in paperback only right now, but the eBook is part of a box set that includes books by 16 other cool authors, all for 99 cents.

And don’t order proof copies of your paperbacks. Lesson learned.

    1. I won’t hold my breath. Not a big deal, though. I never used to order paperback proofs, but occasionally I was disappointed in what the book looked like, so I thought I’d try it.
