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.

Meowy Christmas!

Christmas 2024!

Yup, it's Christmas 2024!

See you again on January 3rd! Admin is closed until then!

Seriously--we "mostly" close from December 24th-ish until the middle of the week, first week of January. Production is still steaming along, but admin takes a desperately-needed break for ~10 days. We'll answer any emails that seem in dire straights, but generally speaking, we're mostly gone for that period of time.  See ya when we return!--Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
