So, I submitted an ebook, and have linked it to the paperback (originally published through CreateSpace). It's still "in review" as of the time I write this. I'm wondering if I'm still in under the deadline because I have SUBMITTED it, or if it has to have gone live. Anyone have any idea? I've sent a message to KDP support, but haven't heard back yet.
Well, I had to leave for work not long after I posted that message and didn't see your reply. I guess I'll find out the hard way...
Honestly, though, it's not like I could've done anything about it at that point. In review means in review, and it was completely beyond my control whether or not it would count, or get out of review by the deadline.
If I had submitted the corrected rich text format from the start, instead of messing with the Kindle Create template which you cannot save as any other file-type,
I would have had time to do both. The template said it was only 22 pages, and kept rejecting it and the pdf copy I made extra, whereas rich text format RTF held it up to 25 pages--even though I counted 34.
