Default Amazon KDP disappointemnt

I published a 744-page book as a paperback through Amazon KDP almost a year ago. For those who may not know, Amazon only recently added the ability to publish hardcover books in addition to paperback and Kindle. So I started to set up my book for a hardcover edition.

No joy. After uploading the book body and the cover, it failed the pre-check, so I didn't even get to see a preview to see what was wrong. It took some sleuthing, but I finally stumbled across the factoid that Amazon has a page count limit of 550 pages for hardcover books. So I can't do the hardcover through Amazon.

For what it's worth, Barnes & Noble Press does not have such a low limit, so I was able to do a hardcover edition through B&N, but it doesn't get nearly as much exposure as it would on Amazon.
