The Art of Story


I have finished “Twilight of an Artist” — 130 body pages plus front and end pages.  Checking the technical aspects with Cal so he can format it.  Smashwords does have a 10 mg download limit, so I am watching this carefully for future books.  I’ll have to decide what to do if there needs be cuts.  One tactic was to do the body in a sepia tone — color eats up much more memory.

I designed and sized (used the 2:3 ratio) this graphic book to fit the e-readers.  In earlier research, it was noted that most graphic books were designed for print.  When resized to ereaders the page ratio was off and the text was too small to read.  The recommendation was to get an ereader and study how graphic  images display.   Mine is one panel per page — large text that can be read when reduced in size.
