There are many different standard formats for books submission.

Most people don’t know this but most author type or write their books in formats already suitable for submission. Perhaps they do, as to why each ask for a different format when submitting a manuscript. What works for one company won’t do for another.

People may  haven’t notice this but every font asked for in book submissions doesn’t always transfer well into an Ebook. Times New Roman is one that doesn’t do very well. It’s doesn’t transfer well especially if there’s italicization in the book. So, sometimes you may have to change the font of the Ebook to make it clearer from that of the physical book.

A. White, an award winning former librarian, who is also a long time member of Romantic Time and Publisher's Weekly. A. White has been writing for over fifteen years. She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and later at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    What I never understood is why all these steps and standards even exist? They sounds like a lot of much ado about nothing.
