Hello,
I have some problems with paperback publishing. Is it necessary to publish paperback at the same time like ebook or I need to publish firstly ebook and them paperback?

I have some problems with Launching Preview. It's doesn't work.

Kind regards,
Nelya

It is your choice. You can space them out even a year or ten years apart if you want.

It may be (1) a glitch with the Zon, (2) a block on your computer or (3) a program you are missing in your computer that will make it work.

What are you using to upload the book? I think the Previewer needs Flash which isn't found on an Android device normally.

For the paperback you should make a PDF which is exactly the same as the trim size, unless you are using bleed. It should then work.

You don't have to publish a paperback at all, and you certainly don't have to use KDP Print to publish it. You should go over to CreateSpace and use their Guided option. It is a much superior platform.

(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
