You could always ask for a front page announcement as well?
Nice! Thanks again - just what we need! Hopefully that will launch it into a wider community here and get the reviews rolling in!
I am going to re-edit the headings to see if I can remove those annoying spaces and page gaps. I think it is because Kindle is reading them as chapter headings and trying to create a gap for them. I will be updating and uploading another version later today.
On the Kindle things are looking okay down my end.
The indent every time there is a new paragraph is quite large, is there a way to reduce it? Also in 'Serving your Oppressor' the indents don't seem to be present? I like how when there's a new 'chapter' in the individual AARs there is a bit of a gap. The only problem I noticed is in Takeda when there is the *** it kind of goes like this:
___ . . .
______. _ . _ . _ . The siege of Matsumoto...
(minus the underscores)
Beside that it's looking good. And the 'afterword' section is a good addition.
The indents don't exist in the original word doc so that is a mystery to me. The Takeda breaks are always going to be awkward formatting-wise but I think it is better to have that than none at all. What IS confusing me is the PDF version - it now has several paragraph end lines spaced out across the width of the page. That is neither in the original word doc nor the Kindle version. I am scratching my head at the moment re that!
I an off to the cinema now and then out for the evening. I am off tomorrow so will re-format and upload another version then. Once we get all this ironed out then we are in a good position for the future premium export!
On PDF the last 2 AARs (Restoring Rome, Serving Your Oppressor) the spacing goes about
The plain txt. versions are fine, although if you download the plain text version and view it there aren't any line spaces. (Viewing it with Notepad/Wordpad)
Online HTML version is also fine, but I'm not sure what's up with the Jave Script online reading version...
The downloadable word version also works/looks fine, but I haven't been able to check the Epub or LRF formats because I don't own the software that uses it.
The only thing that's a bit squiffy is the '***' in Takeda, which looks like how I've shown above on most of the formats.
For publicity I could always write an article for the next Quill? If SBH and maybe some other writers are up to contribute some thoughts to it as well, would be a good way to get us known about?
I've had a look at Tiger's Leap Volume I in both PDF and RTF formats. Three things caught my attention.
1. You have mixed the long and short forms of my name, which looks a trifle odd. I thought we'd agreed to use the long form.
2. Serving Your Oppressor has a formatting problem. Use of Full Justify is producing ugly results, stretching very short sentences across the whole line in a number of places.
3. The break between the different stories could be stronger. Maybe increasing the Title font size might help. The best solution though would be to have some kind of break graphic, if such a thing is possible.
Many thanks for SBH for organising this and a pat on the back to all involved.
The breaks in Takeda do look a little strange. It seems as if the break is correct but then for some reason there are extra full stops in the next line...
A front pager sounds good - SBH it would be good if you could PM Mr. Bond who's in charge of such things.
Yes, I mentioned the formatting issues re Serving Your Oppressor in an above post. I am at a loss as to why this is happpening. The draft PDF was fine and I haven't changed any formatting except to add a paragraph break. Again, I will look at that tomorrow and upload an updated version!
Title size is crucial to formatting. Any larger and it runs the risk of creating spacing issues. I will see what I can come up with re graphics as I think your suggestion there is probably the best way forward!
Thanks for your imput!
Try going to the end of such a line, press delete to remove the soft-break, then press enter to add a hard one.
Downloaded, and will be on my kindle shortly.
Downloaded. A great introduction SBH! I'll review it once I finished reading!
