EPUB saga continues
After Apple said I could not have "(ed.)" in the author info (metadata), and someone else (Lulu?) insisted that I should include the foreword writer (without his role) in the author info as he was on the cover, I did as I was told and I now have the book on iBooks. So far, so good.
It was initially on Kindle as well, and I managed to buy the Kindle version from the Japanese amazon website (I live in Japan) with the author info including "(ed.)" but not the foreword writer (i.e. as I originally submitted it).
However, it is now apparently no longer on the Kindle store, thanks to the changes forced on me above (see first paragraph). Can someone advise me how to get it back on there? I'm hoping it is just a matter of time, but...
