Thank you for your eBook. I do plan to read it. But I do feel the formatting will need some fixing up. Once I fix the ePub, would you like me to send you a copy?

For those of you who have bought MetaGame for 1 penny on the Amazon Store (http://www.amazon.com/MetaGame-ebook/dp/B002L4EXB0), I want you to know that MetaGame is now #48 on the Kindle Best Seller's list! Believe me, for an indie book, that's hard to do.

You made it happen. Thanks!

JSWolf, I'd definitely like a copy. I can then make the better version available through my website.

So how bad is it?

I'd give it away, but Amazon won't let it go for free. Only traditional publishers can swing that deal. ):

Let me know if you run into issues with these formats. AND let me know if there are more formats you'd like me to include.

Dear Mr. Landstrom,
Thank you so much for giving away your hard work for just a penny; I don't know what I did to deserve it but I most certainly appreciate it!

I was delighted to find your book, MetaGame, listed on amazon's "Best sellers in Kindle" (position #21 at the time of my purchase) for one cent. And I got that "Oh yeah, I just got sumpin really good for [basically] free, Baby!" thrill when I clicked that Buy Now button! Sweet! Thanks a bunch!

The plot really does sound quite interesting, too. And, although I do have a huge TBR list (~180 eBooks currently), your book is up there on the list, ahead of many, TBR soon.

Thanks again for your generosity,
Xia

I am still early on the book but the fact that the chapters do not start on their own page is most annoying

Well, the book is finished and I have to say that this is the most original story that I have read. I loved it!

Have you noticed other books do? As far as the finer points of formatting goes, I just guessed. I'm not sure how you can enforce a chapter to start on it's own page in an ebook that might be seen on a variety of devices.

Thanks for the feedback, something to keep in mind.

Most original ever? Wow, that would be quite a statement! I should put that on my marketing page... when I make one.

Thanks for reading,
Sam

I don't know about a majority of devices, but there is a newpage command that, if present in the HTML, will trigger a new page on the Kindle in the mobi version (and on screen in the pc mobi reader). I think I even have it in some notes somewhere, but would have to track it down. I don't know that Word bothers to put in the command, though, when it does a save to html (and you can't see it, of course, in an html viewer, as html doesn't understand page breaks). And most of the converter programs from PDF don't put them in either, it seems (which makes sense, as otherwise there would be a page break for every PDF page).

Thanks koland. Now that I know there's a way to do this, I did a search and according the website I found the <mbpagebreak /> tag will make this happen. I'll try it out.

Thanks,
Sam
