Dear Mary, Christina, Roger, and list emembers,
Thank you for your warm welcome to the list and for the helpful
suggestions. I love to read, so I might as well do something useful
and contribute while I am at it.
The Jane Austen book I am reading was published in England. As with
other English books, some words are spelled differently. If I
understand correctly, apostrophes denote the outer quotation marks and
double quotation marks denote inner quotes?
In regard to formatting, does the title need to be centered on the
title page and is there other formatting that scanners miss or
interpret incorrectly which need to be fixed?
Describing how the pages should be laid out was very helpful.
I am looking forward to volunteering for Bookshare. It is great that
getting more newly released books and literature on a variety of
subjects is possible through the aid of Bookshare staff and
volunteers. My validated books will be submitted in a few weeks when I
return from vacation.

Happy holidays,
Chanelle

> Hello, all.  I just submitted Hotter Than Hell edited by Kim Harrison and

> The scan looks good to me and I've done all of my usual cleanup work.
> Happy validating.

> Synopsis
>
> Surrender to the seduction of the otherworldly.
>
> Beyond the boundaries of the everyday is an unseen realm where anything you
> imagine is possible. Your demon lover is waiting for you in the shadows,
> ready to fulfill your secret wishes and most dangerous fantasies. Here
> passion has a face and form both titillating and terrifying-and love has
> teeth and claws. Get ready to give in to your craving for something
> exquisitely dark . . . and different.
>
> Hotter Than Hell gathers together a baker's dozen of today's boldest and
> best authors of supernatural fiction and paranormal romance in a
> breathtaking anthology that blends black magic with red-hot desire. From the
> tantalizing tale of a conflicted psychic vampire driven by a powerful,
> savage love to the strange saga of a Greek warrior woman battling to save
> the world, these are stories outside the limits, as hypnotic as the full
> moon . . . and hotter than the sun.
