More progress in climbing the self-published e-book mountain. Somethings are swiftly accomplished - built a functioning table of contents fairly quickly.
Then needed six hours to center align a graphic at the end of each chapter. And I’m still not sure I understand why the mobi format insists on putting a shadow table of contents at the end of the book.
Nonetheless, the e-book is being built. Maybe a release date is in the offing. We’ll see.

Thoroughly immersed in learning the basics of publishing e-books. All signs points to the form as a major component of the future of writing and publishing.
First lesson – go backward and re-visit or learn HTML.
The e-book form relies on HTML. Files sizes are modest and the readers tend not to be blessed with unending storage capacity.
Word processors, while marvelous for the process of creating attractive physical documents, are not so wonderful for the screen. Lots of unneccessary coding gets embedded into the files which adds nothing but overhead.
Consequently, I am rethinking the process of writing. Is a graphical text editor the logical first step for creating e-books? Unqualified maybe.
Lessons, lessons, and more lessons.
