Nook Gook

It appears that my Claire Delacroix books have issues in their Nook editions, available from B&N. Some readers have posted complaints that the books are blank, which certainly isn’t what they thought they were buying!

The Nook PubIt interface has been very glitchy since the beginning of December, when Nook sales were opened to the UK. I have tried repeatedly to upload the new covers for THE COUNTESS, THE BEAUTY, THE TEMPTRESS, BQII Boxed Set, THE ROGUE, THE SCOUNDREL, THE WARRIOR, Rogues of Ravensmuir Boxed Set and THE RENEGADE’S HEART. It has consistently refused to process them.

The strange thing is that when I log in, the changes appear to have been saved. (?) Today, I had a better look around and discovered that it HAD updated the covers on the site. The issue is that the files appear to be blank, so the technical issue must have been in the conversion of the file onsite. This is really strange. I checked out the preview and it was fine, but then was told that the update couldn’t be processed.

I’m pretty annoyed right now, as I expect some of you have been. I’ve removed the books from sale that have complaints posted in the reviews. It appears to be the Bride Quest books and the Rogues of Ravensmuir books, as well as all four boxed sets. The boxed sets might be an issue for a different reason, in that the files are large. I don’t see any complaints for THE RENEGADE’S HEART so have left it on sale – if you have had issues with that Nook file, please let me know.

Fortunately, I’m right in the midst of having ALL files made beautiful by a professional formatter. When she’s done, I’ll upload them again.

I’ll let you know when that happens. Thanks for your patience – it should be soon. 🙂
