I'm having trouble republishing a paperback. all I did was revise the content, adding a prologue of just a few pages. I didn't change the cover at all. I've got green showing for complete details and green for complete content. but I've got red showing for problems with pricing. when I try to publish I get a message that says fix red areas but I don't see any red areas on the pricing page. any ideas what the problem might be?

figured it out myself. price wasn't high enough to cover publishing apparently. raised price one dollar from $11,99 to $12.99 and it went through OK. if anybody else has a similar problem you might try that. good day.

An even better solution would be to use CreateSpace.

Good luck! -- NJ

A bit off topic, but what are the advantages of createspace?

This gets discussed a lot. See the many threads on the topic.

Short version: CS has a less glitchy interface, they have live phone help if you get stuck, you get paid after 30 days instead of 60, you can order author copies at cost of printing (plus shipping), your book can be ordered in any regular bookstore and appears on the B&N website.
