  1. I have self-published, but I'm looking into traditional publishing. I am learning a lot about it, and I recently submitted a children's picture book to a publisher, but I know that (for the most part) you need an agent. You don't want your work to end up in "the slush pile".
  2. Hi! This is for all you traditionally-published folks. Do you have an agent? Which agents would you recomend? If you do not have an agent but are traditionally published, which company did you use?
  3. @slw987 I know this is an old–ish post, but I was wondering if you'd mind publishing an honest review on my book on the Amazon website. That review you published on Goodreads was AMAZING and encouraging. Thank you so much for that! If you can't publish one, that's fine. I just thought I'd ask.
  4. @Zee Oh yes thank you for the review!! I check up on my review status constantly, and I did see yours on Goodreads.
  5. Hi everyone! I was just wondering if any of the people who got a copy of my book, Memory Lane Was Moved, during its free promotion would be willing to give it a quick review on Amazon. By the way, thanks @slw987 for the review on Goodreads! Here is the link to my book on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Memory-Lane-Moved-Emily-Bergren/dp/B08JLQLPXH/ref=sxts_sxwds-bia-wc-p13n1_0?cv_ct_cx=memory+lane+was+moved&dchild=1&keywords=memory+lane+was+moved&pd_rd_i=B08JLQLPXH&pd_rd_r=ccce90a4-3cc3-447e-a0e9-686412a68fa8&pd_rd_w=t1JWY&pd_rd_wg=HIWwh&pf_rd
  6. Hi! So, finally, the paperback version of my book for geared toward ages 9-11 is now available in paperback format. It is called Memory Lane was Moved, and it is about an 11-year-old who suddenly lost his memory and finds himself friendless and alone in the city. This book deals with national security threats, secret agents, and more! I am going to discuss some of the process of trying to get your paperback printed using Kindle Direct Publishing. It is rather technical, and it caused frustration to me as I tried to figure it out. If electronic jargon scares you or stresses you out,
  7. I keep on updating my ebook, yet I notice that the version people bought during my free book promo is not updating. I've heard that there is a way to allow updates, but several looks at the Kindle app's settings prove fruitless. Does anyone know how to fix this problem? I want my test readers to be able to view changes I made to the book for feedback before I submit the manuscript for paperback format. Edit: So, I found this article: https://kdp.amazon.com/en_US/help/topic/G200966010 Basically, I have to go through a long process, and the Amazon team will review my request to update
  8. @Zee My giveaway went great! I sold one pre-order copy before the promotion started, then I gave away eighty-six copies and sold one more. So, for sales practically nothing. But for free giveaways a lot!
  9. I did it. I made it so that, before the agent was compromised, he pulled strings because he has connections so that, if any of them want to get on a flight (which they were planning on anyway), they simply had to use a code (I can't tell you what it is, it's top secret...just kidding, it's 7593), and they are free to go. Thanks for the help!
  10. I'm new in the publishing scheme of things, and I recently published my first ebook via Amazon. I have been updating small things in the book, but now I have to change something, and I'm not sure whether I should publish a new edition or just revise the current version. Is there a hard and fast rule about when to do this? I don't know if the change is significant enough.
  11. @PenName, I think I should have the tickets paid for and sorted out in advance by the adult (Larry) that was responsible for Travis (he wasn't his official guardian, but he was heading up the mission until he was compromised). I wonder if that would work? Could a responsible adult pay for a child's ticket without being their parent? Actually, since Larry is a secret agent, he could have connections that could make it work...
  12. @PenName, Interesting. I wonder if she do that without actually being there? I wonder if I should just it so that the airport doesn't have a lot of policies about minors. This is only semi-realistic children's fiction. Obviously, in reality, an airport would have to have certain policies but since it isn't an important part of the story...hmmmm....
  13. @PenName, It is a domestic flight. The tickets were pre-paid for Lewis by Lewis' grandmother (who wanted to buy the seat next to him because she didn't want him sitting next to a stranger). I found an article that says: "Children ages 5-14 are not required to show an ID at time of check-in, however, they are always encouraged to have some sort of ID on them during travel. If your child already has a passport, at least send them with a copy of it in case of an emergency." So, Travis doesn't necessarily need an ID (it is recommended but not enforced).
  14. To me, according to an article I read through, it looks like although it is encouraged for an unaccompanied child to bring ID and his or her birth certificate, it is not absolutely required. Anyone find something different?
  15. Hi! So, I published an ebook and I hope to release it as a paperback soon. I first want to make sure it is pretty much rid of mistakes first. Although it has been edited, every so often someone brings something to my attention that struck them odd. Sometimes, they are not mistakes, but I like to know about the ones that are. Today, someone brought to my attention that my main character didn't have an ID when he went on an airplane. Now, I've never been to an airport or traveled by air before, so I had to research it while I was writing about it. To give you more context, my character
