eBooks Don't Have Running Headers and Footers In The Book Itself.

Although numerous devices now show running headers--like Title and Author name on the iPad iBooks reader, for example--the ebooks themselves don’t have running headers and footers.  When you see a  header and footer in an e-reader, it is created by the use of data that we embed invisibly inside the book.  On most readers, you will not see a running header or footer for numbering as you do in a print book.  The example below, from Oscar Cisneros' enhanced (audio) ebook, "The History of Dying Stars," shows you a two-page spread example of how the iBooks reader on the iPad device creates and displays a running header (title and author name) on the device.

Holiday Closing Alert! Memorial Day, 2020

As amazing as it is, this year, for the first time ever,  we're going to be closed for Memorial Day!

That means we're going to be closed, Saturday-Monday May 23rd-25th,  2020.

I know what you're thinking--what???  The whole country's been closed down for two months!  Whaddya mean, you're taking off?  Well, we haven't been closed.  We've been here working harder than ever, due to a wildly increased demand for our services, so honestly, the Crew and I desperately need these days away.  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, May 26th, to get cracking.  Thank you for your support and understanding.  And please, don't forget why we honor Memorial Day.  We should never--never--forget The Fallen.  

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!
