The short stories…

I went in and cleaned up both collections of short stories because I couldn’t sleep but I was too brain dead to actually write. They had a lot of formatting errors and problems from when I first started and had no idea about using styles in Word. They were horrible as far as converting to Kindle. They had tabs instead of setting indents and I didn’t know how to put blank lines in properly.
It probably wasn’t economical to do since they hardly sell, but it was bugging me. I need to do the same thing to “Paper or Plastic?” – but that will take more than one episode of insomnia.

    Would it be possible to go back and add chapters to April, And What Goes Around and Secrets of the Stars. I would be willing to do the work if you did not mind me doing it.

      No. April in particular is too big already. If you are able to do that you should write your own books.

        If I could I would. I can only try and help those who can.

      Do you mean add the chapter links to the soft ToC in those books, the ToC that produces quick links in the reader menu, and chapter headings grouping search results?
      I concur that is a very desirable feature. My previous request contained links to Amazon’s documents on the topic.

        I put those in the reedited shorts. I’ll add them to the new one coming out. There just hasn’t been a whole lot of requests for a TOC. It makes the free sample smaller.

          I suspect I was unclear. This is not a ToC in the text. It is metadata, and does’t appear in the book itself. The reader sw uses it to make quick links to chapters in the same menu as as GoTo, Search, and Sync; also in grouping search results. Some books have both types of ToC. The in-book type is not useful if the metadata type exists and is used by the reader sw.

        Yes that was what I was trying to say. It does make my point about not being able to write.
