Added pictures

Added a bunch of pictures to the e-book today to see what they would look like - most of them look good, but I do need to enlarge some of them.  Plan to do that tomorrow, as well as delete the space that I ended up creating at the top of the chapter headings.  Also took out the few bulleted lists I'd put in, because they didn't look good on there.  Also figured out how to turn off full justification, which I hate - it completely screws up the spacing in the sentences.

Making more edits...

I'm been in the process of doing some editing to my ebook - that mostly consists of getting rid of some of the wordiness, plus I marked a few places that I want to expand with  more information - I'll be working on expanding those places this weekend, since my husband will be out of town.  I also asked for advice about adding pictures on an ebook writing group that I belong to on LinkedIn, and one member of the group suggested I check out the Smashwords Style Guide, which has some good advice about pictures.  So I'll be checking that out this weekend as well.

Doing some editing on my ebook - went through and changed the chapter titles, and I'm also working on adding some information in spots, and taking out some of the wordiness.

Started looking at ebook editors...

Not sure if I'm actually ready for the editing stage, but I figured at least I could start looking at them and get an idea of how much it will cost me to get my ebook edited - so far the most reasonable editor I've found is - they charge 3/4 of a cent per word, with a minimum charge of $75.  I'll be interested to see if I can find any other ebook editing services, or even just someone who would be willing to look at my ebook and tell me if there's anything else I should include in it.
