How Can you Cancel your Pre-sale, at the KDP?

Answer: you can't.  

When you set up a pre-sale with Amazon, you are given a fixed amount of time in which you may upload the final book.  Don't assume that you can upload a final manuscript or file right up to the live pre-sale date; you cannot.  

(updated: Amazon is apparently now allowing authors to make one change, to a pre-sale date--to make it earlier. But as we recommend in our Terms & Conditions, please make sure that you have your files in your hands, before you slate your pre-sale. Trust me on this.)

Amazon gives you a "countdown clock," that will show you exactly how much time you have, to upload your final eBook file.  If you miss that deadline, the book that gets sent to your buyers will be the last draft manuscript you uploaded.

You can cancel your pre-sale--but if you do that, you lose pre-sale privileges for a year.

Our Clients say

  • Booknook gets it done right. The books are professional, great-looking, and free of mistakes (except for the ones I make, and they even help me catch those). And they're a delight to deal with. What more can I say? Except that there's NO EXCUSE for putting up a crummy, badly-formatted ebook , and Booknook is the place for those who are smart enough to want to avoid doing just that..
    Timothy Hallinan, Edgar and Macavity Award-nominated author of the Poke Rafferty Bangkok thrillers, the Junior Bender Mysteries, and the Simeon Grist mystery series Author, Client

  • I wouldn't put my manuscripts in any other hands. The Booknook crew rocks!
    Carolyn J. Rose, Nook & Kindle Bestselling Author of “No Substitute for Murder,” (The "Subbing Isn't For Sissies" series) “Hemlock Lake,” (of the "Catskills Mountains Mysteries" series) “Through a Yellow Wood” and 12 other top titles--Author, Client

  • Your ebooks are exceptional! They look great, and I've never had a single formatting complaint. The service is also fast and reasonably priced. I recommend Booknook.biz to everybody.

  • Booknook is a first rate formatting service! They make beautiful books with no hassle. They're organized, they're efficient, they're focused, they're timely, they're responsive,and they catch my errors. That's right-- they're literate and alert and have more than once saved me embarrassment. But to me the best part is the personal service--the sense that Hitch cares about these books and is right there to help when I have questions. I've worked with Internet providers who sign their emails "Customer Service" and that tells you worlds about their customer service! Hitch calls me "Jules." Where else am I going to find that?
    Julie Smith, National Bestseller, Edgar-winning Author and founder of BooksBnimble. Author, Client

  • Booknook.Biz has been amazing to work with! They are true leaders in the digital age, on top of their game, and a dream come true for an author wanting to get her backlist into readers hands. Embarking on self-publishing, both the staff and services at Booknook.Biz have been an invaluable asset in making such a daunting task possible. Professional, innovative, honest, reliable, with a keen eye for detail, they deliver on time, and go above and beyond. I highly recommend Booknook.biz, and I look forward to working with them on many more future projects.

Phone Call Alert! 

(Please read, thanks.) 

Old Timey Switchboard Operator Cartoon

 

Due to the COVID-19 onslaught, we currently cannot take incoming phone calls.  

 

A notification about phone calls:  due to the COVID-19 plague, we've significantly increased our incoming inquiries--nearly double our usual volume--and the number of incoming inquiries by phone has been literally overwhelming.  Although most writers will say that their call "will only take 15 minutes," the truth is, that after 10 years of doing this, most author inquiry calls take an hour.  45 minutes at best. I'm currently receiving 7-10 calls/day, and due to that, I've had to stop accepting incoming phone calls, which my voicemail will tell you. You can leave a message--I can't call you back without one--and if a call is needed, I will of course call you.  But we have very complete and extensive email replies, handouts and our website is very informative. Almost all the questions that I receive during a call are actually already answered on our site, or are, in fact, publishing questions, not questions about our services, what we do, what we offer, or the like.  I already handle between 90-130 emails/day, as it is. I can't handle that many emails and take 7-10 hours of calls each day. I can't. So, in order to be able to answer this huge email volume, to help the greatest number of people, with my time, I've had to stop accepting calls.  I'm sorry, but that's just how it is. I'm in the process of setting up a call-appointment function, for free 15-minute calls to answer questions from new prospective customers and longer paid sessions for folks who generally want consulting on "publishing," generally (and for prospective kids' book publishers, as a special category of paid consulting).  But that functionality isn't yet set up. I hope to get that working the 3rd week of July, sometime.  

Thank you for your understanding.
