Drib, Dr. [Editor]: Dead Bodies Everywhere. v1. 22 Nov 08

My first ever .PRC converted book, using a BD file earlier completed as a Sony (.lrf) file.


A number of individuals have given me advice and encouragement - RWood, Harry, JSWolf - but all mistakes and problems are of my own creation.

One thing I've already noticed is that the cover photo is small, but that may be because the original is rather small.

(Problem: I had to play around with this photo issue, as I had 3 or 4 copies of the photo appearing at odd places within the first 2 or 3 pages of the file, so I just deleted the two photos from BD and copied one into this .PRC file.)

Anyway, I hope that I'll get better at this. I've had quite a number of people PM me and send messages requesting that I do Mobi for the books I assemble in the Sony format.

Below is some boring material:

Tired of the mundane? Tired of all the rants , ravings, and ramblings that fill some websites and our lives?

Then come with me and take a walk along those dark alleys where crime flourished..at least for a time.

I've assembled 10 stories of detection and mystery from the old days of the pulps, when entertainment meant something.

Like all the books I assemble on MobileRead, this too was assembled to reflect human intervention and artistic judgment.

I hope you enjoy it. I know I did!

This is my 400 book I've assembled (in the Sony format). Wait 'til I tell you about the next 400 !!!!

The reason the cover image is small is because you used Book Designer to make the PRC instead of following HarryT's tutorial. Book Designer does a so-so job of making Mobipocket eBooks. BD tends to reduce the images in size including the cover. Plus it doesn't put in links for the cover, the ToC, and to start reading. Using the tutorial works so much better. Then you can post version 2.0 and from there use mobi2imp to make versions for the EB1150 and EB1200. See the link below for the tutorial thread.

Congratulations on your 400th Dr. Drib, and thank you for the .prc version of this book. Sounds wonderful.

(Holds out microphone) So tell us, Dr. Drib, do you consider the highlights of your ebook career so far?

I've noticed a few problems in the PRC edition. One problem is that we can get the end of one story and the start of another on the same page. Also the ToC runs into the introduction.

Solution is easy. Just make sure you put in page breaks where appropriate and follow HarryT's tutorial and voila problem solved. Also the cover image will not be resized down to the size of a postage stamp.

That's correct. For Mobi, you have to put in manual page breaks between the chapters.
