Okay, I give. I will start new chapters on whatever damned page CreateSpace wants. I'm thinking that, instead of waterboarding, prisoners of war should be forced to set up new titles for print-on-demand publishing. Title after title after title....
Upload the document, click through all the pages. Find something that got lost in translation between Word and CreateSpace. Go back and fix it. Upload again. Discover that the recent "fix" screwed up something else 50 pages later. Go back and fix it. Upload again. Pages are good, but now the headers don't work.
I cannot tell you how many hours it has taken me to get one, simple book ready for digital printing.
But, it is ready at last. I have submitted all my files to CreateSpace, including a cover that I created myself (oh, boy). I should be able to order a proof in a couple of days, and if it looks good, perhaps we will be ready for launch by next week. In the meantime, I will worry that my bleed was off on the cover and that I'll have to do that all over again, too. Ugh.
