This will be a short rant on the entirety of the Amazon uploading process. Most of it boils down to this: never, NEVER rely on the Amazon.com cover previewer for a reliable preview. It just mutilates the image for no apparent reason. I’ll admit I made the mistake of believing that’s what my cover would really look like, and I panicked. Honest to God, sweating panic. I went through countless sites trying to figure out what I’d done wrong, and then I posted a question on the Kindle Boards about the problem. That’s when a kind soul told me that it was deceitful. My cover would look just find post-publishing. I’ve never forgiven Amazon since.
