Hey folks! Silly question here, but I'm the king of silly questions, so here it is.

 

I'm prepping for my first adenture into self-publishing and I have a quick question about KDP. I've been following Amazon's steps to upload my manuscript from Word. The preview looks fine, but there are some widowed/orphaned sentences here and there.

 

Is that to be expected or did I screw up somewhere? Thanks!

Glad you got it resolved. Feel free to make another post or PM me if you come across any other issues during the process. Personally, I used a program called scrivener, not Microsoft Word. But depending on the question, I should still be able to help.

An audiobook publisher in the US has released the audiobooks for both "Daimones" and "Once Humans". Vol.3, "The Rise of the Phoenix" is also available as ebook and paperback.

    I am writing now a new novel with the events in the universe created by the "Daimones Trilogy"

...and, if you got your formatting out fine, you can also submit to Smashwords to be delivered to other retailers.
