Video: Unboxing My Very First Print Edition of Cleansing Eden

A looooong time coming.

 



* The print book will be available as soon as that color fix goes through. Should be just a few more days. So close! Here's the e-book version on Amazon.

 

* When you buy the print version, you get a link inside the book to get the e-book version for free.

 

* I didn't have high expectations with Amazon Createspace's print quality. Figured it'd be OK at best, like the POD books from back in the day. Nope. Really a nice job. You can't see here, but the cover image is super crisp.

 

* Takeaway lesson for all you authors out there: Make sure you lighten up any dark fonts. 'Cause they'll print darker than you see on the screen. Also, if you're not uploading images at 300 pixels/inch, you're wasting your time.

 

* I have nothing against Wisconsin-based PODs. I just threw out a state.

Thanks, Jonathan! The camera doesn't do it justice. The cover image had a lot of tiny details I was fearing wouldn't turn out. But the print job came through really nice.

The program was CreateSpace and it was very intuitive to use. If you wind up going that route, it must be one of the better self-service PODs out there. I'm not sure how many there are overall anyway.

Wow, that's awesome! Congrats! Holding a copy of my own book like that is a dream of mine. I can only imagine the thrill of it. Good luck with it! And it looks REALLY good for something you say you designed via an Amazon program? Not bad at all.

Thanks, man. It's been a long and winding road, to say the least. I'm just happy to have something to hold in my hand.

Outstanding. I know some of what you've been through to get this out. Well done.
