After a small amount of struggling with colour reproduction for the cover, An Unquiet Calm is now available as a paperback.
Copies are available from Amazon or direct from Createspace:
When I first uploaded the cover to Createspace several warning about transparency and critical elements within the bleed were raised.
As the image was both flat and had no text in the bleed, this puzzled me. So I remade the cover to make certain and resubmitted. Same warnings.
I spent several days measuring and flattening the file to make certain and couldn’t find anything. Then I discovered a very old thread raising a bug with the Createspace automated checks: if a file isn’t PDF 1a compatible, they sometimes misread dimensions or transparency.
As soon as I opened my PDF creator I realised compatibility had somehow been turned off.
Once I set compatibility, everything worked perfectly.
