Odd question, I know.
Although I have a publisher, they are small – so when I am not thrilled with certain things I am told to do it myself or pipe down.
That’s actually not a bad thing – since most authors get almost no allowance to do anything beyond write and deal with the idiosyncrasies of whatever happens.
I am writing this because I test drove the kindle version of TOOLS OF PROPHECY which is being released July 1st. It looks great – except I was annoyed that no page numbers exist for it, just locations.
Now for those who might have read my “about Mike” section, you’ll know I am an engineer.
Heck – I might focus a lot on writing or designing solutions for system software, but I can spell HTML.
When I was told that no page numbers would be released with Tools, it annoyed me.
How many of you indie authors would like to know how to add page numbers to your kindle versions (presuming I can hack a solution together)?
Well suffice it to say that I am publicly throwing down the gauntlet – damnit I am gonna figure out how to crack the secret and do it right. I mean page numbers that aren’t estimates – but identically match hard copy versions of a novel.
What do I need?
Digital book source? Check!
Hard copy for page numbers? Check!
Okay…. I have until Saturday night.
Wish me luck!
