Cover Pages and Internal Images

I circled the Smashword’s wagon for a few weeks wondering how it would fit my needs.  One good pointer suggested I prepare a cover 800 pixels high x 500 pixels wide to upload as part of the Smashword’s requirement.  Spent much of a day preparing a similar cover to that on a printed paperback.

Another benefit to the digital version is the increased ability to handle photos.  The original manuscript of my father’s biography Horses, Trails and Trophies contained pencil sketches primarily.  It became quite easy to intermix photos with the sketches.  Also, since I have digitized some of Dad’s original super 8 mm movies, I was able to upload these to YouTube and then provide links from the ebook version I finally uploaded.

The result is poor quality video sequences, but interesting in a historical context.

I spent most of my professional years working in Educational Technology. A job and a passion. I am now trying to retool as a writer. My web site focuses on the Stonechild Chronicles, novels of a young Cree trapper and linguistic prodigy who volunteers for a private Scots regiment as the world braces for WW 2. I publish through www.smashwords.com. If you search there by Jim Burk or Stonechild you will find my content including a biography of my father, "Horses, Trails and Trophies."
