Red Threads — The First Three Chapters

14 May

I’m keeping it short and sweet today as my brain is hurting from formatting ebook files, which I’m fairly sure is one of the most frustrating, tedious, SOUL-DESTROYING jobs known to mankind.

(If you think I’m being overly dramatic, you obviously haven’t had the pleasure of ebook formatting before…)

Anyway, as of today the first three chapters of Red Threads is available to download as a PDF if you fancy a sneaky preview.

If you do decide to give it a look, let me know what you think–good or bad! Meanwhile, I’m going back to the formatting. *Sob*

    Best of luck with the e-book formatting Stacey-I can imagine it’s a pain! Will go and have a look at your PDF for Red Threads later.x

    Hope the e-book formatting goes OK. Any sort of formatting is a nightmare for me so I feel for you! Off to download your PDF :-D

      Thanks Natalie. I had a bit of a headache by the time I finished, but I got through the bulk of it in an afternoon. At least it’s done now! :-)

    Stacey, you should download the trial version of Scrivener and use it to format your book. It will compile to .mobi for Kindle, and .epub for other e-readers. It is quick and painless, and it’s what I used to format Trinity.

      Thanks Patrick. Do you know–I actually use Scrivener when I write. The trouble I have found with compiling an ebook with Scrivener is that I couldn’t quite tweak the layout to exactly what I wanted. I don’t know if that’s me not being able to use it properly (even after hours with the manual), or if it doesn’t allow a lot of customisation? For example, I couldn’t get the heading of the epilogue to actually be “Epilogue”–it was “Chapter Thirty” or nothing.

Now it's your turn...
