<4-cover image>
Short synopses of 4 novels
<3-cover image>
Short synopses of a trilogy
<2-cover image>
Short synopses of a duology
So what you are saying it you made the ePub not as good as it could be because Mobipocket cannot handle floating images? Please don't do that. Use ePub more to it's abilities and let Mobipocket fall flat where it falls flat. It's reasons like this that publishers don't do things properly in ePub. I've seen lots of places where blockquotes should be used but are not. Places where images should be floated but are not. And why not? Because Mobipocket doesn't do it.
