  1. This is such a useful post on formatting. I have a few ideas for books which are in the inkling-of-an-idea stage right now but this is getting saved for future reference, so thank you Jenn

  2. Great post. I’m not a writer but I’m sure these points are super helpful to those who are.

  3. I’m curious as to how the final page numbers are determined when they go to Amazon as I’ve read some that claimed 200 but had a huge book file and took me as long to read as a 400 page book

    • I’m not sure how Amazon numbers the ebook copies. Being that all E-reader devices are not the same, it’s on Amazon’s end to add page count capabilities to the files. I’ve had the same thing happen to me on multiple occasions and I have no clue how the numbers could be that far off.

  4. I admire indie authors so much not only because of their crafts but because of all the discipline and hard work that requires to self-publish and promote your book and all the skills they have to have! Look at this! ONLY formatting the book is an incredible task! Thank you both for sharing it with all of us!
