On a Kindle title is it possible to vary the "look inside percentage" or am I stuck at the standard 20%? I know that on a print CS title it's possible to vary it by emailing. I. Thanks

Thank you Donna. I contacted Customer Support as you suggested. On ebooks the percentage can be from 5% to 45%. One has to contact Customer Support and request the percentage to be changed (for anyone else who wants to know.)

The default is actually 10 percent, which I find perfectly satisfactory. For a very short book, you might want to go to a higher number.

(Don't trust KDP to publish a print edition. Don't trust CreateSpace to publish an ebook. Each does one thing well and the other thing poorly.)

Good luck! -- NJ
