Don't Look A Blog Horse In The Mouth. Or In The Eyes, For That Matter

Folks, hopefully within a week, two at most, I will have my book up on Kindle! The Flying Fix-it Shop has been a long time coming, but it's made for a lot of practice in a lot of areas. Writing, first and foremost, but also editing and collaborating and I can't ignore the learning process of venturing into Kindle Direct Publishing for the first time.

Today (right now) I'm looking into a navigable table of contents that will make my e-book an breeze to read. Hopefully… it will be easy. Sadly, it will not. I have found out that I need to painstakingly go through my book document and make my chapters a specific heading number, which requires changing the font back and the font size back and the alignment back and taking it off bold. Soooooo frustrating! Luckily, I only have 23 chapters. …I need a break.

Finally! That only stole about two hours of my life (the table of contents, that is, not the break). And I'm still not sure it worked right… The links are clickable, working fine and everything, but for heaven's sake don't try to change the background color. -_- Anyways, I should go mow the lawn. I'm sure my troubles with the Table of Contents have only just begun, and I need something to take my frustration out on.


  1. This is so exciting!
    This busy work is no fun, but sticking to it is what separates the published authors from those who just write stories. I know you can and will succeed. And I can't wait to read The Flying Fix-it Shop on my Kindle.

  2. I super duper can't wait to buy it on Drew's Kindle and read it to him! <3 It's SUCH an amazing book, Gabe! I'm SOOOO proud of you!!! Sorry the Chapter headings were a pain, but it's TOTALLY gonna be worth it! :D
