I can honestly say that yesterday was probably the best day of my life, because I officially published one of my novels! I would love some feedback on my inspirational thriller, Smoke Before My Eyes. Here are the links for eBook and paperback

Well, right off the bat let me congratulate you on one of the most professional-looking covers I've seen around here in a very long time! Excellent!
In your interior formatting, I would suggest much deeper indents. Your pages look like unbroken columns of text with the very shallow indents you now have. I would also justify your text. And do you not have a copyright page?

Thank you for the compliment on the cover! I like to devote quite a bit of time on my covers because it's the first thing people see of a novel, and it sets the mood.
And that's a great idea about indenting. Looking back through it with your suggestion in mind, I can see where it would benefit from that. Sometimes those types of things are hard to spot while looking at a Word document, but on the preview it does look somewhat shallow. Thanks again!

Thank you for the advice! I will definitely look into the margins. I'd love to know what my book looks in my hands to see exactly what I can approve as far as margins go.
And as for Yvonne, I'm not quite sure what that has to do my post about my own book publishing...
