For authors who deal with Amazon: timing is important. If you want your book available in digital, audio and paperback—plan ahead if you’d like all three versions available at the same time.
The digital version, if formatted properly,will be available almost instantly. The process, with the paperback (through CreateSpace) takes more time. If the book is correctly formatted, the proof copy will be available in about ten days. You must then approve the copy and, again, wait. As they say, “…three to five business days.”
If your audiobook (through ACX) meets standards, there’s a seven-to-ten business day waiting period.
Give yourself plenty of time.
Here’s the title story:
I have some excellent news! Amazon now has the paperback version of The Shepherd Left Behind available!
Now we’re waiting for audible.com to release the audiobook version, narrated by Charles Kahlenberg.
The little fable has already garnered one five-star review!
