Working on Create Space print-on-demand for Six Murders Too Many

6_Murders-smallWeb-optimizedI have now finished the final edit of Six Murders Too Many, the first Carlos McCrary novel. I have the Kindle edition online at The print-on-demand edition at Create Space is taking a little longer.

Create Space works with pdf files. I wrote my book in WordPerfect, used WordPerfect to “publish to pdf”, and uploaded that to Create Space. Now the folks at Create Space need to massage the file before it’s ready.

Putting it on Kindle at Amazon was a little complicated. I had to convert the WordPerfect file to Microsoft Word, then go to each of the 70-plus chapters and add the Word Chapter Heading 12 style. It was well worth the trouble. It is so much easier to write in WordPerfect.
