Shouldn't it be Vietnam, not "Viet Nam" as shown in your estore?
"After graduating from Garfield High School he promptly entered the U.S. Army in 1967 during the height of the Viet Nam conflict"
And hope you don't mind, here's a little criticism:
"These are short poems of fantasy, love, war and things I have experienced. I hope you enjoy them. I hope you can feel them. Several are from my dreams and some were inspired by music. There are a few from my novel which will be released in the near future."
I'd totally rewrite this to engage the reader more. "and things I have experienced" isn't very engaging. "I hope you can feel them" Huh? I know what you mean, but it doesn't make me want to read them. "There are a few from my novel which will be released in the near future." and this just kinda makes me want to wait until the novel comes out rather than buy this!
I'd rewrite it to something like (it's not great, I'm not a poetry person!):
"A collection of short poems about love, war and other powerful subjects to stir your (insert some simile). Taking inspiration from the beautiful world around me, my poetry reflects my world. A world which I wish to slowly reveal to you as you read through this collection of emotion-driven poetry. (something else here!)"
I've noticed that it's common for Americans to (incorrectly) write Vietnam as "Viet Nam". The rest of the world -- especially the Vietnamese -- write it as one word.
I just published my first book with CS, TEXAS HOLD 'EM POKER TEXTBOOK
The eStore website is https://www.createspace.com/3486256
The steps to set up the eStore are as follows:
1. Go to MyAccount and click on the title of the book.
2. On the new page go to the 4th panel and click on Sales Information.
3. On the next new page fill in the different boxes and check marks appropriate
for the book. Then click on Save and Continue at the bottom of the page.
4. On the next new page enter the price of the book. And most important, click
Edit in the CreateSpace eStore panel. When that panel opens, click on
Customize Your eStore.
5. A new page opens with the URL (web location of your eStore) and places to
add features. Such as, a banner, Continue Shopping URL,
Continue Shopping Text, colors for the background, the headline, the text and
links. This is where you make it your own. You should most certainly create
an image for the banner. In the Continue Shopping URL box, I put the link to
my website promoting the book: http://www.poker-textbook.com and in the
Continue Shopping Text box, I put a description of what to expect at that
site: More info. about the book - contents, sample pages, etc.
6. At the bottom of this page be sure to click on Save Changes, and then click
Complete on the next page that comes up. You can return to the page in
step 5 and click on your URL to view your work. It can all be modified or
edited again if needed.
Despite reading every thread connected with eStore, looking for the little green mark, etc., I can't find mine.
Michelle mentioned Sales Channel on one thread. I don't have that listed. I can click on a book and see which places I've chosen for distribution, but nothing leads me to my eStore.
Pam your estore is http://www.createspace.com/your book number for instance Not Much of a Crime is http://www.createspace.com/3377719 as 3377719 is the book number of NMoaC. Tubby has a different number, Need a Job? has a thrid number, etc.
Hope this helps explain where to find your estore. If not, give me a call, you got my number.
PS chapter 2 is progressing.
No joy. When I Google CS with one of my book numbers, it takes me Not Found and suggests Authorhouse. Yeck!
I'll give you a call later, Steve. Glad to hear Chapter Two is coming on well. Chapter One was excellent; a very strong character in Jack. I think you have a winner in the works.
