Give it a go! Adding a bookmark to a chapter title simply puts a big neon sign on it, so your hyperlink knows where to go. You two ladies are everywhere with great advice and comments. I feel as though I know you!
This info is incredibly pertinent for me today because this weekend I am in the process of having my ebooks created from my files. Printed book is wonderfully successful.
I am a novice with ebooks—I downloaded all the style guides ages ago but never got to do it. I wish I had the sense to farm it out when my print book was published.
Never too late, I guess. Please keep it coming. Will do, Ester, and thanks.
That sounds very complicated. Since the statement that a novel does not really need an active table of contents alarms me, I would like to tell you why. So I go back and look for it. Naturally, my current reading bookmark follows me as I wander backwards.
So, please, as your reader, I beg you not to dispose of your TOC. I ran into this just today, JK, and it was in a 3-book omnibus in which only the first page of each book was listed in the ToC. This is SO important to a quality book.
Let me add that I like to backlink to the TOC. Little more work, but very handy for readers. Everything said here about TOC also applies to footnotes, by the way. Coker has a separate section in his style guide for footnotes, etc. But yes, the process is the same. Thing is, this is not specific to SmashWords. Or to Kindle, either. ANY ebook, even pdf or doc formats can use hyperlink navigation.
The important thing is that writers understand using hyperlinks, bookmarks, and navigation in their documents and use them to take control of the way readers access their ebook. I found it a bit frustrating, that they all had different formats, and I thought it was a bit of overkill in Kindle. This is the one thing I need to do, but have been putting off.
Morning on the Bay. You might have a look at FAQs. Tedious, maybe, after the first few chapters, but not complicated. Get to Know Us. Give it a go! I ran into this just today, JK, and it was in a 3-book omnibus in which only the first page of each book was listed in the ToC. I found that if you bookmark all the chapters in one go and hyperlink later, you can save time and the process becomes less of a bore.
Thanks for the kick in the pants. Skip to content A discussion started here Tuesday on K. Tedious, maybe, after the first few chapters, but not complicated.
