ePub A Go Go: Charitable Getting

In Uncategorized on October 17, 2011 at 5:01 pm

Yep, Charitable Getting is now available as an ePub!

There is nothing more frustrating than trying to make Microsoft Word and the internet talk coherently together. It’s like Word is the last native speaker of some ancient tongue; I have to treat it nicely or it won’t cough up the goods.

That metaphor may have got away from me. The point is, Lulu makes “chapters” in ePub documents by looking at a Word document and saying “Oh hey, this is called Heading #1, that shall be the title of the book. This is called Heading #2, and it shall indicate chapters.” But Word has both “Header” and “Heading” #s 1, 2, and 3. And only one of them works. And if you use the other one, Lulu is all “Dude, you have fewer chapters than expected, what’s up?”

Lulu would, incidentally, be 100% less frustrating if they threw in some occasional surfer slang. I wouldn’t grit my teeth so much if sometimes it said my file was gnarly.

At any rate, I conquered in the end — I took a book with four different fonts, multiple images, a couple of tables, and one misplaced cake (can’t forget the cake) and turned it into an ePub which is totally rad and a steal at $3. If you’d like a copy, just click on the button below!
