So, this is a quick update to my cover woes post. I resolved the situation, with no need to resort to support again. I re-submitted the cover, no changes made. Whoever was doing the cover review didn’t make changes this time, and the cover spacing worked just fine.
Just goes to show you, even at CreateSpace a lot of what happens depends on which human being you actually get.
Anyway, I think the new cover looks great, and I’m very proud of it. I had to modify it somewhat for a mass market paperback edition, which, ironically, is more expensive then my 6 x 9 edition.
