Last night, I started making notes on the next couple of entries in the new Road to Publication series I’ve been doing. It dawned on me then that we talk a great deal about the process of writing, editing, formatting, etc., but we don’t talk a great deal about things that can go wrong with the process. Specifically, things that can go wrong once you upload your files to online marketplaces or distributors. I know there are those among us who have horror stories. I have my own. That is what I’m interested in.
In the comments, I’d like you to answer the following questions:
- What went wrong in the publication process? (Needs to be specific and it needs to be something you experienced. Please, no second-hand tales.)
- How did you discover there was a problem?
- What steps did you take to find a resolution to the problem?
- How long did it take and were you able to come to a satisfactory resolution?
