Ballard, W.T.: Dealing Out Death, 27 May 2008
ADDED: Version 2 is actually a BookDesigner version, with hot links to the chapters. This version has two different pieces of artwork added.
The other version was uploaded earlier and has been available for about 3 months. That version was assembled using calibre, also a very fine program.
Take your pick.
This title was released under a Creative Commons License, with additional acknowledgement placed at the end of the book. Book was acquired from Munseys, BUT REFORMATED BY ME TO MY SPECIFICATIONS.
This is my FIRST BOOK formatted by me using calibre.
There is no TOC - someone needs to HOLD MY HAND and tell me how to do this. When I had only numbers for the chapter headings, there was no new page break in the text. When I added the word "Chapter" before a number, then suddenly I have page breaks. I also changed the font. I have NO IDEA why I now have page breaks, but at least I have page breaks.
I'm not a programmer....so, if someone wants to help me and if this person can communicate to me in fully developled sentences - using the English language - then I'll listen to your helpful suggestions.
I like the way the type and the spacing between words looks in calibre, and I like this look somewhat better than what I can do with BookDesinger. I like the ease of BookDesinger; but then again, I've assembled almost 300 books using that program.
W.T. Ballard was a great pulp writer, writing both mysteries and westerns. If you like the tough school of hardboiled detective fiction, then you should take a look at this.
In the meantime, if I do get the help I need on producing a TOC, and in understanding how to control chapter page breaks (new pages), then I'm going to continue to experiment with calibre.
I hope you enjoy this fun mystery.
