Trying to Turn Brinkley Makes Headlines Into Paperback on KDP - Margin Errors Galore!
I love Brinkley. I can't look up at the sky anymore and see the clouds rushing by without thinking of him. Ebook sales are doing very well and to help my find figure out the KDP children's book margin adventure, I thought I'd try my hand at it as well. So, we are back with an error message and after four more attempts today to get the error margin messages to correct, hopefully, it was a success. It's off for review now, so send prayers for my friend and her lightning bug children's book she wrote and illustrated, and also pray for Brinkley, too!   Get your .99 ebook copy of Brinkley: https://www.amazon.com/Brinkley-Makes-Headlines-Jen-Lowry-ebook/dp/B086XJ5LDL/ref=sr_1_1?crid=12Z229U4P9HKQ&dchild=1&keywords=brinkley+makes+headlines&qid=1590018387&sprefix=brinkley+makes%2Caps%2C164&sr=8-1 The free educator's guide is found on my website at www.jenlowrywrites.com or on Teachers Pay Teachers (free download).
