What do we do when we “clean" your book?  We look for hidden codes that will make your book come out looking bad.  As one example, our programs and Crews look for broken paragraphs, so that our “automagic" programs can fix them.  They don’t catch them all, but they do catch between 60-80%.  This is why we strongly urge you to check your manuscript very carefully before you send it to us for conversion, so that hopefully, we don’t find any of these.

Then we look for “special paragraphs.”  These are things like song lyrics, or poems, or indented paragraphs that are meant to convey a diary entry, or a newspaper article, something like that.  A format you used to clue the reader that what they are now reading is different than the regular narrative flow.  When we find these, we mark them so we can format them correctly in the eBook.

We look for scene-breaks, so we can format those properly.

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.
