Front matter, back matter, tables of contents, ISBNs, disclaimers–all the bits and pieces that must be organized and managed in order to create a professional ebook–baffles many writers. What’s necessary, what’s optional, where does it go? At least half the search terms that bring people to this blog involve how to manage the extra material in an ebook.
Well, good news. Our good friend at BB eBooks, Paul Salvette, has published a book that answers everything. Non-technical, sensible, and comprehensive, it’s a terrific guide that explains just about everything you could possibly want or need to know. As I write this, it’s free. ( I downloaded a copy as a pdf to keep as a handy reference.) This publication also goes into detail about metadata, another area where do-it-yourself self-publishers often struggle.
So if you have questions about where to put your dedication or how to manage footnotes or what’s the best way to build a table of contents, Paul will show you how. Just click on the book cover.
THANK YOU, PAUL!
