Ione D with Glasses


Our new book, “Miss Ione D and the Mayan Marvel” is scheduled for release in e-book form on 5/24. That's less than two weeks away! The e-book will also include a sneak peek at the first chapter of the Ione D sequel, “Professor Ione D and the Epicurean Incident,” which we hope to publish later this year.

On that topic, I've finished converting Ione's first adventure from its original “Libre Office” format to e-book format, using Kovid Goyal's handy e-book application “Calibre.” It's actually a general-purpose program, which allows you to catalog your e-books, read them on your computer, and synch with your e-reader device. Best of all, it's available to download free of charge, and it works on Linux (also Windows and Mac by the way.) For those using Microsoft word, here's a link to a tutorial that explains how to create e-books from DOC or DOCX files. One bit of advice: if you're going to use Calibre's table-of-contents generation tool, make sure to format all section and chapter headings with standard styles (i.e., Heading 1, 2, or 3.)
