Well I don't think short story wouldn't be a problem as long as you have it cleaned but and properly formatted. 2 page story should be fine. But Coryn or Lego can give you exact min-max figures.

Minus shipping the prices range from 2-5, but I thought the 100-120 page range was still the safer bet.

I wonder if Sherbert or Vacant found better alternatives to createspace. That taxation nonsense was a big no for me.

If you meant me, it's barely 2 pages in Word with spacing but it's not polished. Would probably end up being 2-3 pages in Word unless I really fleshed it out. Just a quick short story.

Hold on to your story, maybe there's room. We've just got to see what the requirements are from the publisher we find. Maybe ther'll be room for more stories.

Format it to the best of your ability, no fan fiction and at least 1 complete chapter or it should be a self contained short story.

@Vacant that one looks real interesting man. But that's only my opinion from the front page haha. Have you made an account there?

I forgot to update your story No1sey sorry. I'll get on it tonight.

On the publishing front I've just decided to go with a digital release by Amazon. I'll update as much as i can how close I am to the date. Sorry for the delays!

So I added your story No1sey and spellchecked the entire document. Now all I need to do is add the stuff at the beginning - table of contents - decide on a font and then it'll be ready for publishing. I don't know if anyone is willing to quickly proofread it - 77 pages so not a cakewalk, but any help would be welcome
