I have successfully uploaded my book. It had 3 illustrations in the original but they have each been replaced by a space and a camera. How do I get the illustrations back where they belong please?

What did you upload? Assuming you used Word, you have to "insert" your pictures in, not copy & paste.

If you uploaded an html file, you have to "zip" the text together with a folder with your pictures in it (the picture-folder will have been generated when you did save-as on your Word file).

I need to know this: When our paper versions are printed, is that by some modern process that
produces a very limited "run" of copies? Like anything from one to 100, say. or 500?

I have seen recent blogs on other platforms accusing some apparently "straight" companies of
being "vanity" types. (Like Vantage, who promised to sell 1,000 copies for $2000, then later
upped their price for printing that run to $9,000... as far as we can recall.) Then I saw some
pathetic person hawk his books (tons of em) from a van on the street. Pathetic.

I expect the publisher to do surveys, market our product like anything else, and forget the
Apocalypse... except as an issue found within our stories. They may do this. Some deals
must be hammered out first. I can see Amazon as useful stepping stone. (They are good
as standard electronics types, and will one day find a market on the Moon and Mars, and
even Jupiter, where machines belong.) That is what Book Two is promoting.

If we have to bully publishers and the readers into accepting what is, actually, propaganda,
which is what all books are, even subconsciously, then so be it. Back in 1997 i thought my
books were a bore and irrelevant. Now, they may change the direction of modern fiction
and science in the English language. (Or Western culture.)

Second point: We are not into satire. Satire is a biting, sadistic, cruel & often
offensive piece of work. In my books, the humor is gentle. That invites contempt
but they may have no interest in literature. We may have passages of "pastiche"
which is humor that is "caring" not hostile. Any satire comes from our characters
and they direct hate at each other. (Dystopias are for this.)

Satire was big in the 1990s, but may be outdated by now. Just check some movies
from Hollywood. They have humor, but it is light. They have a message and other
things which are more substantial.

Comments?

Hi, Tommy.

As I understand the system, YOU are the publisher of your books. A'zon is only the printer and distributor. Does that make you feel better? If not, tell me why not.

Thanks.
