I was responding to someone else who stated they bought it. Why not tell them to keep it to themselves too? I understand your sentiment, but you were rude in expressing it. You'd have been better off to keep that bit to yourself too. :P

Thanks for your input! It is so helpful! We think it's only the Look Inside that has that error because the E-Book doesn't have it. We don't know what happened with the Look Inside. And, no, this is our first book, but we already have a sequel called Watch for Falling Rocks. Thanks again! You've been most helpful! Have a great day!

I started reading last night. It's really a fun, and funny, little book so far. The cartoonish and over-the-top imagery and action work very well in the context of a school for monsters. There is a little awkwardness in some of the dialogue, but that doesn't bother me as much with the age group involved as it would with an older set of chara*cters. The gap between the first and second letters of chapter start words is evidently from a drop-down cap that doesn't carry over to the Look Inside. Otherwise, good job.

Didn't get any reading (or writing) done today -- recovering from a bad fall in the early morning -- but I hope to put aside the ice packs and pick up some books later tonight. Looking forward to continuing the story.

In addition to what I suggested regarding the cover and blurb, it would be a good idea to buy/download a copy to your own Kindle. It's really the best way to see what your customers see.

I agree with buying it to view on your own ereader. Also, I use the trick of making the initial letter of the chapter like twice as long and bolded and chuck the idea of a drop cap because I don't trust them to appear correctly on all readers. Now the print book is nicely drop capped, but then again, I control what that looks like.
