As I posted on FB yesterday, MJ’s book is formatted correctly if you read it on a Kindle device.  If you’re reading it from an iPad or an iPhone, what happens is, each paragraph, each dialogue, is indented.  For all of you receiving this email, you’re used to paragraphs being flushed to the left, with absolutely no indentations anywhere.  On an iProduct, even the Table of Contents is indented.

Amazon tells me that their policy is to auto-indent every paragraph.  Well, since the non-indented format on  the Kindle device is correct, what they’re telling me is not true.  But, it’s impossible to change this since there’s no phone number to call and emails are answered every 12-24 hours.

The solution?
-Read it on your Kindle device if you have one.  Everything is perfectly done here.
-Since there is no change to the storyline, just read it with the indentations?!?  (A reader told me today that this was her first time with my blogs and she had no idea there was anything wrong with the formatting in the book).
-Wait for the iBooks version?  Can’t promise when this will come out.  I just got rejected today because my dedication page (once it’s up on every e-retailer, I’ll post the dedication page on my website because I’d love for you all to see it) is a different font style and size than the rest of my book.  They are really, really picky!  I need to make some changes and resubmit.
-Download from Smashwords.  All is good on this site and the great thing about Smashwords is that once purchased from them, you can read on any device – Kindle, Nook, Kobo, iPad, EPUB etc.

Sorry this has been more complicated than it should’ve been.  For those of you who’ve purchased MJ’s book and read it on an iProduct, I’d love to hear what you thought of the indentations.  Am I just being too particular?  Also, I’d love to hear what you thought of all the prologue blogs.

Thanks for listening to my rant and see you all again in 2 1/2 hours.

    Really? That was the problem? The paragraphs are indented? I thought maybe they changed the story or you accidentally submitted the wrong story. To me, as long as the words are the same, the first line of each paragraph being indented matters not. Don’t worry! Relax! Be happy!

    I have to say until you mentioned it I hadn’t even noticed, I even had to go back and have a look at what you ment.

      Perhaps it’s just me. It bugs the crap out of me to see the indentation. Another reader said the same thing to me earlier today. Thanks for the reassurance!
