Fiction about #climatechange #drownedworlds   and cities under water? Apparently it's the new big thing - it's called #clifi   - says +Claude Nougat in +Publishing Perspectives . Hey, this might be my niche -  I did it in 2011 (My Memories of a Future Life) and again this year (Lifeform Three) http://publishingperspectives.com/2014/06/why-climate-fiction-has-gone-viral/
The literary genre cli-fi, or climate fiction, is booming as the true risks to humanity from global climate change become more prevalent.

#selfpublishingtips   Beware if you're making changes to Createspace books! There seems to be a bug in the online previewer.
Dave's made minor changes to the interior of one of his books and it's been rejected, despite printing perfectly well before.
First it told him he hasn't embedded the fonts properly and would make adjustments (pause for !!!! No way would I let them fiddle with fonts.) It displayed the interior with DEMO stamped all over the pages. Now it's rejected the file altogether, saying it encountered a technical issue and the files weren't printable. (They are printable. But the book is now stuck in limbo.)
We went online and discovered several people have had this over the last few days. They adjust a file that they know is fine to print and are greeted with this message.
Has anyone else had this? And if you're making a few scratches on a CS book, you might be better waiting until this has been resolved - or you might find you are annoyingly unavailable

More info to share: friends tell me that this happens from time to time. If you're caught by it, upload the file again. Giving it a different name works too.
Perhaps I panicked too soon! Good luck, all! #writers #indiepub
