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.

Holiday Closing Alert! Presidents' Day, 2020   

Happy Presidents' Day 2020! We're closed today, but back tomorrow.

As amazing as it is, this year, for the first time ever, in 11 years now, we're going to be closed for Presidents' Day!

That means we're going to be closed, Sunday and Monday, February 16th and 17th, 2020.

No telephone calls or emails will be answered.  The admin office needs a break.  We'll be back, everything to the ready, the morning of Tuesday, February 18th, to get cracking.  Thank you for your support and understanding.  

For those of you already in production, the production crew is running full steam; Judith (QA--Quality assurance, our Princess of Perfection) and Jay (Our Doyenne of Customer Delight) will be here and working, checking books and sending them out, so please, don't worry.  It's just we lazybones in the admin office that need a break!
