It sounds like you're having the same problem many of us have had, and that's 
probably the short synopsis, not the long. How many characters do you have in 
that? If it's more than 200 characters...not 200 words, but characters...it 
won't go through, and we frequently get this error with no message indicating 
exactly what the problem is. Now that I know, I always put my synopses in Word 
to do a word count to make sure I don't get frustrated by that again! <smile> 
Take care.

  Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Long description problem

  Okay, what is the real limit on the long description for a book submission?
  The web page says less than 500 words and I believe that is the field that is 
causing the problems.

  I copied the information off the cover which is 1bout 170 words and it still 

  I'm going to try again with no descriptions and see if that does the trick.

  It seems to me that if it really will take 500 words is should do that.
  Or at least have better error returns that indicate exactly what the problem
