no afterward or acknowledgements.
Yes ends in full sentence,
good idea about checking number of pages like from amazon or somewhere.
I may try that.
I did already release it though.

and yes, Your very helpful. Thank you!!!

Does the book have an ISBN on it? If so, you can check with Amazon or any library you can access, and see how many pages it should have, then check to see what the last page in your book is, if it has page numbers, which it should have. If you don't have an ISBN, check to see if it ends in a complete sentence. If so, then that is at least better than it ending in the middle of one, because it tells you that it is at least more likely to be complete. Does it have an Afterword, or an About the Author section at the end, or an Acknowledgements page? That is another indication that it is probably all there. You could check some source you trust such as a library or a bookstore online and see if any of the editions they have match the number of pages you have in yours.

The apostrophes may very well be correct. I just scanned two books with apostrophes for all of the dialog. So check them out and see if they surround people talking. If so, then they belong.

Hope some of this is helpful.
