Publishing my stories

In Rehaul, I wrote about switching over D2D because many people said good things.

D2D

Yeah… I don’t think that’s happening.

I wrote an email to ask them questions a day or so ago. I haven’t received word back. So that means they aren’t super quick when it comes to contact.

I tried publishing Fireworks, my short story as a test run.

Final cover for Fireworks.

They refused to accept it. It took hours before they said it’s not good enough. They didn’t say exactly why. Or what’s needed extra to make it publishable.

“Pride ourselves on customer service”. Why does every company say that, but I never end up getting any good customer service?

I’m tired. I need to figure out how I can make Smashwords and KDP work. I created a BN vendor account. It was accepted. It’s like the only thing that went right today. I tried to set up Apple. Nope. There’s so many hoops I need to go through.

I can use my BN vendor account to post paperbacks there. KDP isn’t being nice to B&N. Some of the paperbacks show up. Most don’t.

I don’t know. I’m not sure what to do next.

I’m feeling like a failure. I’m fighting an impossible battle.

I regret not aiming for traditional publishing. Then this wouldn’t be my problem. I would sell after the fact. I would create before the fact.

For right now, I think I’m just gonna have a good cry. This isn’t the only bad thing going on. Life is hard. I’m tired.
