Multiple Links and Notes in BD: Decide Your Own Stinking Fate Adventure Stories

I've been toying with making some ebooks that are written along the line of the "Create Your Own Adventure" books that became popular in the 1970's. In those books, you read a page and at the end you decide to either attack the villains or run for help. Depending on your choice, you turn to a different page and find out what happens next. This repeats until you die and then you ask for a do-over, back up, and try different choices until you get the adventure you really wanted (i.e., where you get the bad guy and win the girl both). They are fun and should be ideal for ebook readers but I haven't seen any yet.

I created the attached trial story using Book Designer (sorry, it's political in nature but I really love Hillary, Barrack, and John and so it's done entirely tongue-in-cheek; please don't take any of it seriously or get mad at me; I'm fond of the ending, though). This is the Mobipocket version which appears to work fine. But the links in the Sony LRF version just don't work at all. I think the problem is either that multiple "notes" to the same "link" (I'm using BD terminology here) don't function or I don't know what I'm doing. It's probably the latter. Could someone suggest something to help me?

I've posted this in the Lounge in hopes that the moderators will forgive me for posting potentially contentious political drivel. But it really is just drivel. I mostly just want to know how to make a proper LRF file for a Decide Your Own Stinking Fate ebook.
