Formatting for E-Publication

You know how you were taught, in that typing class eons ago, to hit “Tab” when starting a new paragraph. Yeah, don’t do that. At least, don’t do that if you plan to submit your finished 117,000-word novel for e-publication. I just finished going through and deleting the tab indent in front of every single paragraph in the entire novel, a task which took about an hour. At least that’s done!

The next step is building a Table of Contents. It won’t take long, but it’s something that, for some reason, I never thought of myself.

I’m getting more and more excited as I grow close to getting the manuscript finished. Some day soon I want to write my thoughts on self-publishing vs. traditional publishing and what it means for someone who was raised in a certain paradigm. But for now I’ll just stick with these updates.
