After a trying time, trying to inspire myself to finally get published, but getting ground down by the requirements and specifications of the goliath, I recalled an inspirational talk by Mark Coker.
Way back in history, at my local Writers Centre in Byron Bay. It was a seminar on epublishing when Smashwords was still new and hadn't taken off yet. The first year of its operations, I believe.
This is it. I'm going with the david.
And not only that, I'm done with trying to format for publication. Though Mark gives a fabulous description of the hows and whats in in his Smashwords Style Guide my word processor is not up to it, and I'm tired of the time-wasting while I fight it.
Instead I sent for Mark's List.
And am getting my formatting done by John Low and team at http://www.ebooklaunch.com
They have a good troubleshooting site at http://getsatisfaction.com/ebooklaunch where to get answers about anything at all to do with the publishing process.
