This code forced a blank page after the cover:
<body>
<p class="sgc-1"><img alt="" src="../Images/image001.jpg" />&nbsp;</p>
</body>

Changing to this fixed the problem:
<body>
<div>
<svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" height="100%" version="1.1" viewBox="0 0 443 747" width="100%" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink">
<image height="800" width="475" xlink:href="../Images/cover.jpeg"></image>
</svg>
</div>
</body>

Btw, the "&nbsp; wasn't causing the blank page either, I even removed that at first thinking it was the problem, but even without it, it still always forced a blank page after the cover, and that blank page appeared in Calibre's viewer as well as on my ereader.
What was the style sgc-1? That is probably the issue.

Oh and turn off tidy so it prevents making sgc-1 type styles.
