    I ran into an interesting issue on Amazon publishing the paperback for Whispers of Ghosts. The stated page limit for 6x9 cream paper is 776, BUT when you request a template it will cap you at 740. If you’ve just spent untold hours getting the MS typeset and beautiful, this can cause a heart attack. Getting to 776 was no fun, 740 would’ve been a major headache.

    Solution!

    Use the template size of 740, submit your cover and MS for review, and it will tell you that your cover is the wrong size and it will give you the correct size (for 776, it was to add .088 inches to the width of the cover image) and all you have to do is correct from there and resubmit.

    This way I didn’t really have to do any math, heh heh. And the book is now live, happy days!
