    The stories are illustrated with cartoons that include scenes that are usually absent from children’s books such as the circumcision of Jesus and a headless dove being prepared for a sacrifice. However, the illustration of Herod’s massacre of boys in Bethlehem doesn’t show any blood.
    Reads like your writing style. I wish a greater portion were available to preview in "Look Inside."

    Congrats, John. It sounds like an interesting project. Did you illustrate it yourself?

    It is meant to show 20% by default and I requested 30% be shown.

    You are clearly making these up.

    1. Sales dashboard shows purchases within the last 90 days up to the last 24hrs. You don't have to wait for a month.
    2. eBook royalty options are either 35% or 70%. How do you reconcile that of an $5.49 ebook? Eh. Granting, the price point works toward 70%.
    3. There's no paperback.
    4. There's no way paperback price point is lower than the ebook price.

    Just no.

    The link is to the amazon.com.au site. On the U.S. site the full price is $4.99.

    3. There's no paperback.

    It is also on the Australian site though it is no longer linked to the ebook:

    4. There's no way paperback price point is lower than the ebook price.

    I said that my compensation/royalty for the paperback is sometimes less.
    Just no.
    Just yes

    Images look too pixelated on mobile. Thanks for filling me in. AU Marketplace seems a different marketplace from its US counterpart then.

    Cheers.

    Could you give me an example of an eBook that doesn't have this problem? The original images are 600px wide displayed at the size of 300px. It looks like Ingram spark removed the hires data since it's version of the epub is 2 mb rather than 4 mb. I think I'll re add the images in hires though on tablets and computers they'd look too big.

    With pixelated images I meant the images you attached, not your eBook. I checked it on a desktop first time, it looked fine.

    Just follow Kindle’s recommended pixel ratio and you’d be fine.

    Best to avoid changes to your manuscript or book cover once you published it. After changes will cause considerable inconveniences for those who already purchased your eBook. They will have to update their version or worse download it again.
