As we mentioned before, Kindle in particular does not like extra returns.  These are actually called “empty paragraphs," and if you use return to try to make space, Kindle will ignore them.  We have to add special codes to make that vertical white space above Chapter headings, or on the Title Page. 

This means we have to find and remove all the extra returns you used, and replace the with special coding in the HTML.

At this point, we visually go through the entire book, and check it for proper coding.  We ensure that any blockquotes you've used are correctly formatted; any other special material, like journal entries, newspaper articles, images, fleurons, or anything else that is different than the normal paragraphical narrative.  The Crew responsible for your book gives the book to our production manager, who performs QA on the title.

Remember our Fallen

Memorial Day, originally called "Decoration Day" was created
to honor those who have been slain in defense of the US.

As many of our returning customers know, we close on the holidays to recharge our batteries, as we're normally open 6/days/week.  As a former servicemember, I feel strongly that Memorial Day should be observed--and remembered.  

We'll be closed, administratively, from 5:00 p.m, the night of May 24th 2019 through the morning of May 28th 2019.  Production will be full-tilt boogie while the office is closed, but in Admin, phones will not be answered and emails will only receive auto-replies until we're back on our regular schedule. Books that are in production will be shipped, fear not.  

Thanks, and have a happy and safe--and memorable--Memorial Day.
