Do eBooks Have Page Numbers?

When you see “page numbers" in ADE (Adobe Digital Editions), or other readers, they are created by the reading software. This happens when the book is loaded for reading. Ebooks makers do not create them. In ADE, they are shown as changing to a new number every 1,000 characters. In Kindle, a new "location number" is displayed, approximately every 128KB.  While these numbers are very useful while you are proofreading your book, to indicate to your bookmaker where you need changes, as they don’t exist, they are not something that you need to worry about. They won't show up in your final book. You can see an example of those "faux" page numbers below, in Robert Ryan's "2013:  Beyond Armageddon."

Holiday Closing Alert!  

LaborDay2Kwide721tall

As amazing as it is, this year, for the first time ever, we're going to be closed for all three days of the Labor Day weekend.  

That means we're going to be closed, Saturday-Sunday-Monday, August 31st through September 2nd, 2019. 

No telephone calls, no emails will be answered.  We almost never do this, but it's been an incredibly hectic year and the short of it is, the Crew (and I) need a break.  We'll be back, everything to the ready, the morning of Tuesday, September 3rd, ready to get cracking.  Thank you for your support and understanding.
