1. Have a formatting checklist
That is the biggest mistake I did. I didn’t write a formatting checklist that included things like add the cover design/ stockphoto credits. As a result, I had to reupload Exile 3 times.
2. Once you have hit published, you cannot fix things in the e-book. Which means you’ll have to unpublish it and reupload a new version. ( Can you pretty please change that Publit?)
3. Kobo takes a long time with uploading things. ( At least 5 days)
4. The Widgetshop is too complicated. I think a lot of people balked at giving their address and stuff for something that is free.
Speaking of free: You can download Exile at Kobo for free right now. Since I just reuploaded the 3rd version ( fixing the quote marks), I also changed the price to 0.99. I have no idea how long it will cost 0.99. It depends on how big cut Kobo etc takes.
