|Yes, it says the title right on the book|
some other weird symbol, plus the electricity kept going out, of all things.
I won't bore you with all the other issues we had, but I will say that we had one last biggie. Other than the book misnaming fiasco, things started out well. I submitted my finished e-booklet and about 12 hours later my Kindle account told me that my book was live. But when I went to Amazon, there was no way to buy it. You could see the book cover, the title, and the author, but no Buy Now! button. I sobbed a little, then contacted Amazon. They were nice and told me exactly when I'd hear back from them about the problem. I submitted my book on Sunday, contacted them on Monday, and heard back from them on Thursday. It was a long wait in Kristina years, but at least I knew when I'd get an answer.

I thought it was my title screw-up holding the book back, but it turned out to be more complicated than that. Apparently, Calibre - the conversion tool we used - only supports up to version 6 (I think that's right; I'm not exactly known for my computer prowess). However, in the end, as scary as those two paragraphs looked, we only had to change one thing. Sounds simple, right? Let's just say, luckily for me my husband (GorKee) knows what he's doing.
So here's a synopsis of the booklet (it's not very long, hence the $1.99 price, but it is chock-full of goodness):
