Page & Paragraph
Just did a totally awesome thing with my e-Reader!
I converted my own novel, Man of the House
, into an epub document. I added a photo for a cover and created by own e-book for my e-reader. While I'm not considering publishing in this route, it does give me another perspective for editing my book.
After seeing and reading it repeatedly, my eyes/mind will gloss over some of the glitches. I needed a new way to look at it again. As I said in a previous comment, I am the Queen of Re-writes. Even as agents are reading it at this very moment, I still want to get a little more polishing done. I read via the e-Reader and make notes with pen and paper. It's been an exciting breakthrough.
I'm always looking for new ways to improve my writing, and I consider this an unexpected bonus from the e-Reader. I wonder if other writers have done the same thing. This is definitely going into my Writer's Toolbox.
In order to do the conversion, I used a free program called Calibre
that is amazing. It's easy and has tutorial videos, and did I mention it's FREE?
