comment What exercises will help me write my co-author's character?
I suddenly have a vision of the poet from Brotherhood of the Wolf reciting his poem at the dinner table (apologies for those who haven't seen that wonderful film).

comment What exercises will help me write my co-author's character?
Well, the interview technique is one exercise I did suggest, because it works well here with a co-author. As for the rest of what I'm talking about, standard character sketching techniques/exercises would apply, which have been covered by Writers.SE before, e.g. writers.stackexchange.com/questions/392/…

comment Kindle self-publishing, automatically update
That's fine, but what I'm trying to point out is that what I've put there is completely factually correct, and it's taken from Amazon's own FAQ on the subject. It answers the question as to whether or not Kindle "quietly" fixes it for them (it doesn't). I did not misunderstand anything. It does not, as you claimed, only refer to "publishers", it also referred to customers. Saying I've confused the issue is nonsense; if anything Amazon's FAQ is confusing/incomplete/out of date. I didn't confuse anything, and answered the question as best I could.

Replying "yes" demonstrates the customer must request the update.

Also, the note at the bottom specifically refers to "customers": "Note: Customers who purchased the old content can also contact our Customer Service department to have the new file delivered."

I don't see how it confuses anything. Your answer below shows that it is not an automatic update, and the customer needs to confirm they want the update, which is exactly what the text I quoted says.

+1 "try having the authors edit each other's sections" That's a great idea!
