drop_caps_image_905_274I just discovered the Tips website of fellow member of LinkedIn and wanted to share … how to go that extra mile in formatting your book for ePub and Kindle. I have not tried this yet, but I’ve thought about it often and seen many old ebooks with this feature not working! I use MSWord so it may be a challenge. I’ll keep you posted 🙂  Link for Drop Caps Also check out Marks’s website for other great tips. I’ve registered to “follow” him so I don’t miss anything! An additional tip on same subject from Cathryn Isakson on LinkedIn: “If you fiddle around with the font size in the dropcap definition, you can get the baseline of the dropcap to align with the baseline of your paragraph text. In my last ebook, I also added a subtle colour to the dropcap and it came up well.”
