Why was the Kindle version out for almost two weeks before the print version?
It’s significantly more difficult to format the files for the print version. What you see on the screen is often not quite what you get on paper. Strange things happen to page layouts and graphics, like the maps in the front of the book. The sequence of pages and insertion of blank pages to make things appear physically where your eye expects them to be can be a puzzle. I guess I’ve been lucky with the other books. I’ve usually gotten it right on the first try. With Bluewater Vengeance, it took three proofs before it came out the way I wanted it, and each proof introduces a delay of up to a week.
It’s a relief to have it done; I’ve been ready to move on to Bluewater Voodoo ever since I released the Kindle version. Now I can get started on it. As soon as the paperback is in the Amazon store, I'll post a link on the Bluewater Vengeance page. Thanks for your patience, and I hope you enjoy it. It’s already scored a five star review in the Kindle Store. Read the review by clicking on this link: Modern Pirates of the Caribbean.
