    To be honest there's a part of me that doesn't want to release it...:oops:

    But I've written enough to learn that if I'm not a little bit scared to pull the trigger it probably isn't worth reading.

    Proof received. Crap color print job by Amazon. Reviews say they can be all over the board quality-wise. Many photos have large vertical stripes in them. But all my margin and bleed settings were right.

    It's rewarding to (finally) hold it in my hands all as the correctly-size book with the cover in place. The photos that printed right look great. I saw complaints of photos printing too dark and I was worried I'd have to trade a bunch out.

    I took another read through and found a dozen or so small errors. MsBoyink is taking another pass and I see ~20 post it notes sticking out of it already. Crazy what you miss.

    But I don't want reviews that say "poorly formatted, lots of errors" etc.

    Cross your fingers...might have made a deal to get the book into a string of RV dealers.
