Hi Evan, The file is over 17 meg, although it was zipped when I downloaded it. I don't usually download kesis with images because I'm still on a dial-up connection, but this one had been languishing and I thought I'd see what I could do with it. The upload problem you're referring to usually occurs when a person is uploading something they've validated, not when the submitter uploads the file initially. That's how those big books get stuck on step 1 and people keep trying to validate but then can't upload. When I'm done with this file, I'll submit in rtf and I doubt I'll have any trouble because it's a children's book and not really that long.
