I’ nearly finished editing my book and I couldn’t be more excited! Only a few more chores before I can finally publish. Formatting comes next. With self publishing you really learn what’s involved in producing a quality product, and because this is my first book I’m finding all the snags. Which is good for working out the kinks for my future books, but it’s really slowing down the process on this one.
I can’t decide if I want drop caps at the start of each chapter or not. It seems like a dying trend. Also, when I read them sometimes they seem awkward if they are too large.
I currently own a Kindle and am thinking about getting a Nook. The problem I’m noticing with Kindle is—even with the most coveted mainstream authors—there seems to be a lot of editing issues that you wouldn’t normally see in a paperback. Why is that? It should be the same content. Right?
Could it be that errors are easier to spot on a screen than they are in a book? Or is this some kind of kindle specific issue?
