We make all your regular narrative paragraphs the same.  We add first-line indents, if you did not use them.  If you added an extra “return” between paragraphs, we remove those.  Extra white lines between paragraphs are discouraged by ebook retailers, as are block-style paragraphs (paragraphs without an indent, with a blank line between each). 

For the first paragraph of every Chapter, and the first paragaph after a scene-break, we use flush-left paragraphs (no first-line indent).  This is the usual industry standard right now, although some authors prefer something like this: * * *.  If this is your preference, simply say so.

As an example of flush-left paragraphs and whitespace for scenebreaks, please see the screenshot of "Jan of Cleveland," in our Mini-FAQ, in the Using Vertical Whitespace for Visual Cues article. 

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!
