At First, There Was Only Darkness
Welcome to my blog, another little slice of the Net. At the time of this writing, I’m in the process of prepping my novel, A Chant of Love and Lamentation, to submit it to Smashwords for publication on all platforms — Kindle, Nook, iPad, and lots of other readers. The process is not difficult, but it does take time and attention to detail. For example, last night I discovered I need to remove all Tab indents because they have strange effects on e-readers. Who knew? There is a way to do this in Word using the Find/Replace function, but since I’m using Open Office instead, things don’t work exactly the same and so I found I couldn’t do it the quick way. This means going through, paragraph by paragraph, all 117,000 words of the manuscript, and manually deleting tab indents. Good times.
More to come as I go through this process. And thank you for your interest!
