While aggravating, it seems appropriate that Amazon’s latest missive from their bitches in the rejection department are now telling me that my latest print book, Stripper or Nurse? has a bleed issue!
The print version of Stripper or Nurse? was released several years back. With my newfound urges to offer my smut in print form, I decided to update the book and republish it in Quark. While there wasn’t anything specifically wrong with the original release, I just can’t seem from stopping myself when I get an idea. As an engineer, I tend to be OCD and anal about somethings and just couldn’t help myself.
First, they rejected the book because I didn’t include all the words from the title in the electronic version on the cover of the print book. Who would have thought that they would care about some minor detail? So, I fired up CorelDRAW and fixed the cover or so I thought.
This morning, I find another vindictive email in my inbox telling me that my cover has a bleed issue. I already knew that but didn’t think it would be an issue as the faux nurse on the cover would divert the reader’s attention to her long legs.
Bleed is when an image extends outside the “cut line” of the book. By having the picture large enough that the page gets trimmed inside the image, it avoids a blank area between the image and the edge of the cover.
One more time, I’m on my knees kissing the feet of the approval gods!
As always, if you read an erotic story from me or any other author, take a couple of minutes and do a quick review of the story at the site where you purchased it.
If you don’t have a preference where you buy your porn, take my advice and get it from Kinky Literature. The price is the same, and you are helping to support a great provider of smut.
I’m Larry Archer, and I write erotic stories for the huddled and yearning masses. Foxy and I are swingers in real life, and I write about the things we do and see. While the Lifestyle is not for everyone, it’s been fun for us. My smut is explicit and hardcore but with a somewhat plot. My porn stories are generally positive and fun as this reflects how enjoyable swinging has been to us. If you’re interested in checking out my stories, I publish at all the typical outlets.
