I had originally just done the individual pieces as Word Docs, with very controlled formating and images. Then, I read that I needed to create exact page breaks before converting to pdf. I noticed the footers got screwed up, and the water marks I had on some pages (understandably) vanished.
What really bothered me though, is the crummy cover page. I didn’t go too crazy designing my own original piece, just a few images I put together with a very basic, straight forward text layout. Unfortunately I didn’t do it as a Jpeg, so I couldn’t upload it.
Certainly a learning experienmce for when I finish the in depth pieces I have in the works, but still. Hopefully my little attempt at some very inexpensive PR will be remembered more for “that Stu guy really shed some light on some very common questions” than “that Stu guy really messed up his formating” -lol.
I honestly did not even notice your front page, some headings were just on the ending of one page where they should have been on the beginning of the next, some pictures where not the right size and whatnot.
But, quite frankly, in your case, while I understand your wish for flawless formatting, which will come in time, I am looking for content.

I am with this. E-books allow a little more leeway in organization, grammar, sentence structure, layout, and so on because they are made to target niche crowds, and these crowds want solid content, not perfection. I still think quality in the those things are important though.
