My book is not a chapter book it is just Poetry along with a short bio. Why Do I need to add chapters to the table of context?
I think you mean Contents?
It has to be done because the retailers Lulu distribute to insist on them, and it's how ePubs work anyway. Don't forget that they are digital files read on digital devices. A list of contents in them are hyperlinks to what is listed in it.
But all you need to get around it is to have a Title Page and a Copyright page in a TOC.
However, there's no reason at all that a poetry book cannot have a 'full' TOC. They are just books when all said and done.
What#s that got to do with TOCs and publishing?
