That's a pretty odd headline for someone about to publish his novel as an ebook, admittedly, but here's my beef.
I love the look of books; design has been part and parcel of books since their beginnings. All those monks illustrating their manuscripts by candlelight. But ebooks are woefully limited in that regard. Format them for Kindle or through Smashwords as I have done, and you give up all sorts of things: page numbers, choice of font, limits on type size, no left-flush (Kindle) -- the list goes on. The way a book looks should be part of its allure.
Plus the formats are imperfect. Kindle, for example, doesn't seem to be able to justify everything correctly.
But I suppose that I should be grateful that epublishing allows an avenue for writers like me, as well as providing a far less expensive option for readers.
I just don't understand why every damn device has to have its own operating system, with all the limitations that implies.
Once again, harrumph.
