I’ve been working my way through the round of getting a paperback version of Open Gate ready for sale by CreateSpace (Amazon’s print-on-demand arm). It was tougher than I expected, but I did succeed.
This included having to expand my cover artwork to have a spine and back cover. I kept things simple and went with all black, since the "background" of my professional cover was black. I think it looks pretty good.
Had to work on lots of updates for page breaks on the front matter. Managed to get it all done using compiles from Scrivener, although I had to use the Mac version, since some of the options aren’t yet available on the Windows/Linux world. I actually prefer a Mac for many things, but my current desktop is a Linux box. Windows I use on occasion (well, lots at work, but not for book writing).
Got it all finished and sent for a proof copy. Glad I took their advice and actually had one shipped. My wife found I had messed up and included the "ebook" text on the copyright page. Duh. Fixed that and got things for sale.
