Small Celebration – PROOFREADING aids!


Small or large?  This is a good question.

Let me just say that I am celebrating several things.  They have to do with a book I reissued in Kindle, with a new cover, part of a series, free on KDP.

Celebrating?  What?

Well, let’s see:

1.  the cover design.  I’m happy with it.  I already posted about that, but

2.  I decided to do a trial run with Microsoft Office (free for 30 days; monthly fee after that)
It made inserting clickable chapters and such absolutely easy, and – but I’m getting ahead of myself.

So, the book is free.  I want to make certain it’s the best it can be.  I get it set up for Kindle which, with this new MS application, is easy.

I then update the paperback.

Typesetting error (insert loud ‘ARGH!’)  I pull up the thing, find the problem, fix it, I think…  Then I see the page numbering, which is all messed up.  At this point, uttering curses, I settle down to fix the pagination which, trust me, is a major pain. 

It was not.  This new MsWord is a dream.

All done.  I’m celebrating!  …And I hope you all have something really good to celebrate this weekend!
