Logged into KDP account and realised I've made 4 sales :) (with only 5 books listed).

However, someone has left me a 3-star review - saying they can't record XYZ in the log book. ...But I know the book does what it should do.

@amyjay , can I do anything about an incorrect review?

Does it say verified review at the bottom?

If it does, there's nothing you can do as it means they bought it.

If it doesn't, click report on the review as it means they haven't bought it.

No, it doesn't say verified review.

The three options at the base of review are:
Helpful (button) ... Comment ... Report abuse

Should I click on 'report abuse' or email Amazon about it?

Try emailing Amazon and see what they say about it.

Looking a lot more at this and watched lots of Rachel Harrison-Sund. Will give a lined notebook a go to get used to the whole process. Got my first idea sorted, validated etc.

I want to make my own lined interior to get used to Canva and have seen some videos on how to do this. But some of the lined interiors templates I have seen online have a slightly bigger margin to one side and they haven't shown this in the videos I watched. I guess this is to account for left and right pages but how do I know how much wider to make the margin that would be at the spine for those lined interior pages?

I am still trying to get through all the info on Amazon too. At this rate i will be lucky if I publish a basic notebook by the end of the year :LOL:

If you're doing a simple lined journal then the margins shouldn't affect you.

As you'll want to do the lines all the way to the page edges and do it as bleed.

As this means that when it's printed, it will be lined all the way to edges.

I recommend just diving in there and giving it a go. Amazon shows you a preview of the book and will tell you if you're book side or margins are off. And you can learn through that.

Also, is anyone started making valentine's books?

I've made 4 so far, 1 last week and 3 this week and I've already got 2 sales. So hopefully this will increase as it comes closer to valentine's Day.

Thanks. A preview of the book will be really useful. Ye I prefer a notebook with lines right to the edges when I'm writing it's just that most of the templates I've seen seem to have the lines stop before the margins. Think I will stop overthinking it and get going. I know my first book is about the process and is unlikely to be a great seller anyway.

Think it is bit early days for me for Valentines Day books but I might give Easter a bit of thought. How are you doing with it all? You were juggling it alongside your work, does it fit in ok?

Yes Easter is a good shout.
I'm going to focus on that once valentine's is out of the way.

I'm doing quite well with juggling it.
Luckily (or unluckily depending on point of view) I've been part furloughed since November. I worked almost full time in September and October but since then (and probably for February too) I only work 4 hours a day.

Which means I have plenty time to get some books made.
