Looks like you need a "," at the end of the authors line. That's the problem with having to use code for customising at the moment...
Works wonderfully now - it's always the little things

This is what I'm currently using in combo with an plugboard for placing series info in a book title.

################################################
# Create Kindle Collections Plugin tweaks
#
# Calibre column names to include in collections, text to prepend for sorting, and
# minimum number of books needed for a column before creating a collection
create_kindle_collections_usecolumns = {
"tags": [ "__", 1 ],
"series": [ "_", 2 ],
"author_sort": [ "", 1 ],
"read_status": ["___", 1]
}
create_kindle_collections_ignore = [
"No-Col.*"
]
################################################## ##

I eliminated the space as it confused my k3 which would no longer do the go to beginning of "k" or "s" ... trick if some of the files were - title rather than -title when in title mode.

I also chose to use characters that would sort in the same order whether I was creating a collection for a kindle with firmware 2.5 or 3.0 as I had previously discovered that they didn't prioritize special characters the same.

The minute plus for the collection manager to run & the several minutes for the kindle to re-start are nothing compared to manually creating collections.

I'm quite content with making changes using tweaks rather than a gui, but that's just me.

Thanks so much for this plugin!
