View Full Version : Poetry book on ereader help!

03-29-2011, 04:38 AM
Anyone here publish a book of poetry on an ereader here. If so. How? I published paper copy through CreateSpace last year. I'd like to upload it to Kindle/others. I tried starting on Kindle. Looked fine on initial upload file. Then when I did the Kindle preview. It looked horrible! Lines ran together or went on next line. When not at end of line. Is it just due to line size. Cause it seemed to mess up even shorter lined poems. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hey Dog,

Not sure if you're still visiting the cooler these days, but (not seeing this) I just started a new thread in the Poetry area that might help you:

Feel free to use/modify the code in the URL files I've listed there to see if they work for you. I created my Kindle eBooks (none that I have authored yet, just some public domain stuff) from scratch using the simplest HTML code. I don't trust editors or programs (i.e., Word) that convert automatically simply because it pads the file with WAY too much extra code that isn't needed; not to mention making it harder to troubleshoot.
