  1. Would suggest change title “make change to e-book” as there will be fees for change print-on-demand and regular book stock would be changed in 2nd or 3rd edition also with fees. Since I don’t do e-book as of now , therefore the article would not help me and I would not read it but I have bookmarked the post just in case I will do e-book in future. Change in title as e-book would also help people to find this article if they needed it instead of endlessly googling titles for this specific information. Would also benefit by adding a review as what is KOBO. I never heard of it.

    • Points taken, Carl – that’s the problem with reblogging – we’re stuck with the original blog title, which is also automatically uploaded to other media – any subsequent changes to the title will only be reflected on my blog and Twitter 😎

      • I posted on author’s post from which you reblogged too. Imagine having to make text changes in 10 Commandments(Moses woulda been pissed but he broke the first copy anyway) and Egyptian hieroglyphics. Sheesh. Things were actually set in stone for sure ! In my case I get furious with myself when I have do redraw a cartoon after spotting a spelling error in the gag line or balloon especially after I have proof read that single sentence a million times. It can take several hours. The coloring is tedious.
