ePUBs not being accepted in Nook Press?

Hi Everyone!

 

I'm new to this board and now I have two questions! But I'll only post one here . . .

 

The FIRST problem is, I am unable to get the new Nook Press (first time I'm using it after using Pub It for the last couple years), to accept my Sigil ePUBs.

 

This is the error message:

 

We were unable to import your Manuscript into our Editor.

 

Never had this problem with my ePUBs before--does anyone have any advice for me?

 

Thanks so much!

UPDATE:

 

It was my filenames causing the issue. I had them named "Chapter One", etc., but B&N doesn't like the space in the filename. Easy fix and now it's uploading just fine. :smileyhappy:

Re: ePUBs not being accepted in Nook Press?

Nook is probably running your EPUB file through EPUBCHECK, which is OCD that way. EPUBCHECK is OCD about no-spaces in every kind of file name, as a matter of fact. So if you put a logo on your title page, you can't call it "My publisher logo.jpg." Nope, you have to name it as, and your HTML has to call, "Mypublisherlogo.jpg."
