The joys of book formatting

Spent yesterday getting Saint Valentine's Clash ready for Kindle/Nook and print.  Then I decided I should get it set up for Smashwords too.  I mean, that will make it a lot easier to give people review copies.

Went through Smashword's style and formatting guide, and was facepalming the hell out of myself.  I'd struggled for hours making the print copy, fighting over stupid justification.  Ten minutes reading the formatting guide, and I was able to breeze right through.

Of course, this is all after I've already submitted files to Kindle/Nook, so I have to wait.  Which means we most likely won't be seeing a Valentine's release for the ebook.  The print book was already going to be delayed to the end of the month, give or take.  CreateSpace is really fast, though, so it won't be a huge delay.

What silly simply little woes.  It's hard to be an indie author, right?  *smirks*  But at least I'm an author.
