Smashwords book reviews by B. Scott Tollison

  • Basic Fiction Formatting for Smashwords in OpenOffice on May 05, 2016

    A great guide for basic formatting in Open Office. Step by step instructions that are easy to follow and that helped me get my book set up for publishing on Smashwords. I tried Mark Coker's formatting guide, but, since I don't use Microsoft word and was unexperienced with the processes on Open office, I found it difficult to follow. So I downloaded this guide and used it in conjunction with Mark Coker's formatting guide and found the process much easier. I'm still looking for an alternative to the 'nuclear method' so I don't have to re-apply the italics through my entire document when I want to upload, but I'm not sure there is one. I hope Mark Coker sets up a link to this book to make the upload process a little easier for those who don't use Microsoft Word. Either way, I'm happy I found this guide. Thanks to Leona Davis for creating it and making it freely available.
