Step in at your own risk, Monsieur Toad. Face mask strongly recommended.

Especially Redford. He looks leathery. And ginger.
Newman though aged rather gracefully right until his death.
But I am impressed with Clooney. He is 15 years my senior, but I dare say, looks younger. In fact, in my estimations, he's still the best looking chap in Tinseltown.

Thanks for this post! I'm a newbie and this is a great forum. So thanks!

One question: how do you republish once you fix a mistake? Won't it detect that it's already listed? Or would it override what's currently listed on Amazon?

Thanks! Have a great weekend. :D

Once you've finished publishing and your book appears "live" on your bookshelf (can take up to three days) you click on the select box by the title you want to edit, and then in the drop-down options you can edit anything about the book at all, including uploading an entire new file if you've revised it. If you've made significant revisions consider changing the edition number on the book details. Then just republish. DON'T publish as a new book if you're just making amendments, just edit the original.

If you're only changing the description (blurb) you can do this through author central http://authorcentral.amazon.com and the changes will go live in about 15 mins. To change the book file, cover image or price you need to go through the bookshelf and it will take 1-3 days to roll out completely. It will overwrite the old file and the book will remain available for purchase throughout.

Thank you! I ask because my first book went live early this morning, and I just noticed one VERY small error. In the introduction, I wrote "me" instead of "my". Sigh......

it happens, don't sweat it. we have a conspiracy theory that the noids insert a typo on the first page of every newly-published book :-)

Haha, that's funny. Kinda like the sock monsters that eat socks in the laundry machines? LOL. Yeah, since I'm at work right now, it'll have to wait until tonight to revise. Thanks again, Diamond!
