These days all the retailers require a navigational Table of Contents in your ebook, so if you’re uploading a new book, updating an edited version of your previously published book, adding new titles and links to your list, or adding new reviews, you’ll need to bite this particular bullet.

I must tell you, I resisted the new functionality at first. I argued against it. “Readers can already bookmark their ebooks in their ereaders, why should I add another layer of complexity?” And “This is fiction, not a textbook in which the reader may want to skip around to various chapters.”

Forget about arguing with Apple. “We require it, and that’s that,” they said. So does everyone else.

Smashwords offers a free video you can download that walks you through how to do it. I didn’t download it. After my laptop got seriously hacked last summer, I download as little as possible from the Internet.

And I don’t know about you, but my eyes glaze over reading Help on Microsoft Word. Plus, I found a major instance in which the Help didn’t provide the latest or the easiest information. So I figured out how to do this functionality myself.

Once I’d worked out the kinks, I really love the Navigational Table of Contents. It turns out to be a helpful tool in a reader’s ebook and makes your presentation more professional. It’s not difficult, just a bit time-consuming

First things first.

After your front matter page (book title, author, the usual disclaimer language, date of publication), insert a page and set up your Table of Contents. I think centering this looks best.

Type “Table of Contents,” then the headings, typically “Praise for Books by You,” “Contents of Your Book,” “About You the Author,” and “Books by You,” and any other special features your book may contain that you’d like a reader to jump to, such as a “Dedication,” “A Introductory Poem or Quotation,” or a “List of Sources.”

Shaken has a List of Sources, for example, because I did a lot research about earthquakes for that short novel (expanded from a novelette, “Deus Ex Machina, published in Asimov’s Science Fiction Magazine). Same for The Sixty-third Anniversary of Hysteria, in this case research about women Surrealist artists in Mexico, 1941.

But keep your TOC simple, with a bare bones of headings. You don’t want to overwhelm the reader on the second page of the ebook! Tip: If your ebook is divided into a few Parts, I think the Part titles work well in the Table of Contents. The Garden of Abracadabra is divided into three titled Parts, with chapters labeled only with numbers. Tesla, A Worthy of His Time: A Screenplay has five titled Acts.

That’s a small enough number of headings in addition to the basics not to overwhelm. Be sure to type the exact title of the Part, spelled correctly.

Tip: What if your book has only chapters with numbers and not titles? I’ve seen some TOCs in which the author has dutifully listed and centered the chapter numbers and linked to each. You’re under no obligation to list each and every numbered chapter, especially if the chapters have no chapter titles. It looks silly and clutters up the beginning of your ebook. The retailers don’t require it.

What to do? Set up your TOC as suggested above, including a heading, “Title of Your Book.” Then insert “Title of Your Book” on the first page of text above the first chapter, Bookmark and Hyperlink it as set forth below, and you’re good to go.

Tip: What if your book has numerous parts and chapters with titles?

Do not put them in your TOC.

Instead, link “Contents of Your Book” in your TOC to your Contents page with Part numbers and titles, and Chapter number and titles. Then, on the Contents page, you may Bookmark and Hyperlink each part or each part and chapter, if you wish.

Summer of Love has seven parts and twenty-one chapters. The Gilded Age has numerous parts and twenty chapters. I Bookmarked and Hyperlinked everything on a Contents page..

Celestial Girl, The Omnibus Edition (A Lily Modjeska Mystery) includes all four Books in the miniseries and maybe a hundred chapters altogether. I Bookmarked and Hyperlinked only the Books and left the chapters alone.

Next, the techie part.

This is for those of you who work with MS Word and have a .doc file for your ebook. This is the Gold Standard, uploadable on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords, which ships to Apple, Kobo, and Sony.

[If you’re working on an Apple device, I can’t help you.]

Step One: Bookmarking 1: Do this first. Select Table of Contents on your TOC page. On the top toolbar, click Insert. You will see the menu for various Inserts. In the middle of the toolbar, find Hyperlink and Bookmark.

Click on Bookmark. You will see a menu cuing you to name the Bookmark and an Add, Delete, Cancel list to the right.

Always start the Bookmark with a capital letter. No punctuation, no spaces, but you can capitalize letters within so you can easily identify the Bookmark when you go to Hyperlink to it.

Example: The first chapter in Summer of Love is “She’s Leaving Home”. The Bookmark for the chapter is “ShesLeavingHome”.

The menu will then cue you to Add.

Since we’re still on the Table of Contents heading on the TOC page, type in TOC and Add it. The Bookmark must always be TOC.

Tip: Be sure to Bookmark TOC properly. Neither the Smashwords Style Manual, the Amazon format guide, nor the MS Word Help state this!

When I uploaded my first updated ebook on Amazon, I got a Quality Notification stating that the GoTo function in the ebook wasn’t functioning. The Quality Team sent me a link to hellishly complicated MS Word instructions on an automated Table of Contents functionality. The Instructions, when I printed them out, were 6 pages long!

In fact, Hyperlink-Bookmark is simplicity itself, and I sent them an email to that effect. Some kind soul replied that all I needed to do was Bookmark the Table of Contents as TOC.

I really doubt the automated Table of Contents works across the many platforms you need to upload your ebook to. Don’t go there.

Step Two: Bookmarking 2: Next, you want to move on through your ebook and find each heading you want to Bookmark. That would be “Praise for Books by You,” “Contents of Your Book,” “About You the Author,” “Books by You,” and any special features your ebook offers, Part titles and Chapter titles. You want to do this first to make sure you match the Bookmark to the heading.

Select the text, Click Insert, Go to Bookmark, type in the Bookmark name, and click Add.

Tip: If, on the Bookmark menu, you see a little box to the left checked “Hidden bookmarks,” it means MS Word, in its mysterious way, has generated a line of code that will interfere with your legitimate Bookmarks. (Why oh why does Word do that?) Click a couple of times on “Hidden bookmarks,” not the checkbox, and you will see in your list of Bookmarks, one or more bookmarks beginning with _. Delete those bad boys! Delete them all!

Step Three: Hyperlinking: This is the fun part.

Go back to your Table of Contents page. Select a heading under Table of Contents and click on Hyperlink. You will get the Hyperlink menu. Click on Place in this Document to the left of the menu and–lo!–your list of Bookmarks will appear.

In the “Text to Display” box at the top, the selected heading should appear, but if it doesn’t, carefully type it in. Then find the Bookmark name you’ve given for the place in your book, click on it, add it, and save your file. You’re done!

Almost done.

Tip: Be sure to test each Hyperlink. Select the text, left click on it or click plus Ctrl, and MS Word should zoom you to the right spot.

Another tip: I have three different Books by Lisa Mason for each of the main retailers with different links and specialized text. I paste each in depending on the version of the ebook. When I do that, though, the Books by Lisa Mason Bookmark gets nullified and I have to reBookmark and reHyperlink it to make it work.

So there you have it, my friends. Creating a navigational Table of Contents in your ebook takes a little extra time—which none of us has!—but you’ve got to do it. I hope my trials and errors will help make the task a little easier for you.

Aristoi Cover Final

Aristoi by Walter Jon Williams

Gabriel is one of the Aristoi, the elite class that hold dominion over a glittering interstellar culture, their rule more absolute than that of any Old Earth tyrant. When another of the Aristoi is murdered, Gabriel finds that the foundations of his civilization are tottering, and that his own power may have its roots in the greatest lie in all history.
In order to defend himself and the interstellar order, Gabriel must go on a quest into the heart of barbarism and chaos, and discover within himself his own lost, tattered humanity.

Written with care, intelligence, and grace, [Aristoi] depicts a future society based on highly developed computers and biological engineering, the key skills of which are controlled by an elite known as the Aristoi. This world is depicted meticulously and vividly, and so is the near war of all against all that is unleashed when one of the Aristoi falls prey to the corruption of power. A fine, thoughtful work, highly recommended; Williams seems to grow with each book.” —Roland Green, Chicago Sun-Times

Beneath the facade of universal prosperity, however, lurks a tide of dissension and madness that can only be fought from within. Williams tests the borders of imagination in a novel that combines brilliant hard science and speculative vision with a firm grip on the central humanity of his characters. A priority purchase for sf collections. —Library Journal

In this complex and rewarding novel, Williams (Days of Atonement) has created a future which features many of the wonders SF has been promising us for years: virtual reality, genetic engineering, faster-than-light travel, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, telepathic links with computers, and more. Perhaps most interesting is that people have control of their daimones, different aspects of personality that are given specific names. The class system remains: the aristoi are the seemingly perfect humans who wield power and influence; in fact, some worship them as gods. An aristos named Gabriel discovers a conspiracy among three others of his class, who have created several worlds that are barbaric, with little technology and rampant disease and sickness. They have also killed other aristoi to cover their tracks and violated the sanctity of the Logarchy, the massive, open computer network that links all humans. In a nice touch, Williams renders several scenes in two columns of text on the page, the left describing the action, the right Gabriel’s internal dialogue with his daimones. And in one delicious scene Gabriel has sex with two different women at the same time–one in virtual reality, one in real space. From Publishers Weekly Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Walter Jon Williams is an award-winning author who has been listed on the best-seller lists of the New York Times and the Times of London.  He is the author of twenty-seven novels and three collections of short fiction.
His first novel to attract serious public attention was Hardwired (1986), described by Roger Zelazny as “a tough, sleek juggernaut of a story, punctuated by strobe-light movements, coursing to the wail of jets and the twang of steel guitars.”  In 2001 he won a Nebula Award for his novelette, “Daddy’s World,” and won again in 2005 for “The Green Leopard Plague.”
He has also written for George RR Martin’s Wild Cards project.
Walter’s subject matter has an unusually wide range, and include the glittering surfaces of Hardwired, the opulent tapestries of Aristoi, the bleak future police novel Days of Atonement, and the pensive young Mary Shelley of the novella “Wall, Stone, Craft,” which was nominated for a Hugo, Nebula, and a World Fantasy Award.
His latest work is Impersonations, a far-future thriller set in his popular Praxis universe.
He has also written for George RR Martin’s Wild Cards project.
Walter has also written for comics, the screen, and for television, and has worked in the gaming field.  He was a writer for the alternate reality game Last Call Poker, and has scripted the mega-hit Spore.

Piracy of ebooks is not a victimless crime. If you use any of these websites to download my copyrighted ebooks, those books are not “free.” You’re stealing from me, taking food off my family’s table. I’m the victim when you download or read off of any of these scam sites.

I’ve neither been properly paid for my copyrighted content nor have I given my consent for their “free” publication. These sites have simply stolen DRM-free copies of my ebooks.

I’m a working author! I put my heart and soul and brains into my books and stories. Please help me by not patronizing these websites.

Here is a list of some sites I’ve collected, thanks to Google Alerts. The biggest offender, Tzar Media, appears at the top. They have denied offering my books repeatedly and suggest that I go to each one of their individual vendors with my Cease-and-Desist Demand.

Sadly, these individual vendors require your credit card information before you are allowed to enter their “free” website and contact their webmasters. Would you give that info to a pirate?

So here are the pirates in the Hall of Shame I’ve collected so far, thanks to Google Alerts:

Then I’ve also heard about Torrent. This is a notorious pirate of ebooks. Please don’t go there.

And here is the complete list of my copyrighted ebooks, which Bast Books offers for a ridiculously inexpensive price. Most have been previously published in print by Big Five Publishers.

popcorn-12-1-16

When I was age eight, my parents liked to go out nearly every Saturday night. They’d lived through the rationing and privations of World War II. The Fifties and Sixties brought huge prosperity to America. I can’t blame my parents for wanting to enjoy themselves.

My mother was a professional nutritionist in a large hospital at a time when wives and mothers typically didn’t work. My father was an electrical engineer and inventor. As first-generation Americans born of immigrants who’d escaped the Iron Curtain, they were doing pretty well in Cleveland, Ohio where I was born.

So my parents would get dressed up and go out Saturday night, leaving me alone in their house. I suppose they trusted me, with my Siamese cat for company. Maybe they never considered whether I would have liked some human companionship on those long nights. In any case, they never hired a babysitter.

Both of my parents were only children, each with brothers who had died before they were born. So I had no aunts or uncles, no cousins of my age I could call. My maternal grandmother lived nearby, but she was taking care of my grandfather with Parkinson’s disease and went to bed early.

I have vivid memories of being alone in that big, dark house, feeling very lonely and often scared.

The furnace would go on with ominous monster-in-the-basement rumblings. If there was wind, the house itself creaked and groaned. My mother would turn off all of the lights on the second floor and most of the lights on the ground floor except in the family room, where there was a library and the television. Then there was what I was watching on television.

In those days, Cleveland carried a couple of channels that aired reruns of TV shows and movies. “The Xanti Misfits” and the episode where a queen bee turns herself into a beatnik woman who tries to seduce the scientist-beekeeper (I think that one is called “Regina”) on The Outer Limits; “Demon With A Glass Hand,” on The Twilight Zone; and Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo were memorably scary to an eight-year-old.

(I’m quite sure the gorgeous footage of San Francisco in the early 1950s imprinted itself on my subconscious mind. After I spent some time in Washington D.C., I made a beeline for the Bay Area. We have Vertigo in our collection to this day and I still hate the ending!)

I’m very thankful the station didn’t air Psycho. I would have never taken a shower again.

To assuage my loneliness, I’d make a short trek through the dark dining room to the kitchen where my mother would leave some under-the-counter lights on.

And there I’d make popcorn. My mother had this electric popcorn machine, an aluminum canister with a round handle of glass on the top and a wire that plugged into the bottom and into a wall outlet. I’d pour corn oil up to a line etched inside (at the time, I didn’t know corn oil is considered bad, nutrition-wise; it was the only oil my mother kept around). Then I’d pour in a third-cup of Jolly Time. I preferred the blue label containing white corn, which made a meatier, crunchier kernel. The red label, which contained yellow corn, made a bigger, fluffier kernel but it didn’t have as much taste.

I knew the drill. Pour everything in, plug the machine in. When the popped corn pressed up against the glass handle, and the machine steamed, and I could smell a bit of burning at the bottom, I’d whip off the wire. Using oven mitts, I’d carefully pour the canister into a bowl. I put nothing else on the popcorn except Morton’s salt (a lot of it).

I’ve never liked Coke, then or now, but I did like a grape soda pop my father kept in the fridge. It tasted like carbonated grape Kool-Aid. I’d pour a glass of that to wash my salty popcorn down, waiting for my parents to come home and turn on the lights.

Nowadays, I use Arrowhead Mills Organic popcorn, organic extra virgin olive oil, and Mediterranean sea salt. I’ve got a Lindy’s stainless steel popper, with a paddle on the bottom and a wood handle on the top. You crank the handle, which turns the paddle around while the corn is popping. This makes superb popcorn. I still burn the bottom a bit. I love a few burned kernels, but that’s just me.

The Lindy’s is kind of a hassle to clean, though, and I usually don’t want the extra fat. So I’ll haul out my West Bend air popper. This miraculous machine produces a bowl of virtually fat-free, fiber-rich comfort food in minutes. I still sprinkle on too much salt. Nobody’s perfect.

So there you have it. What’s your favorite comfort food and why?

From the extinguished HomeWorld, the Settlers traveled across the stars to NewWorld with hopes of starting over again.

In the war-torn nation of Illyria, Maya just wants to grow vegetables and live in peace. But she has a dark secret she can never reveal, especially to her beloved Yuri.

Written in the tradition of Fritz Leiber’s classic, “The Man Who Never Grew Young,” and Martin Amis’s Time’s Arrow, uniquely told from a woman’s point of view. The story’s title is an homage to the 1959 film by Alain Resnais, “Hiroshima, Mon Amour.”

The ebook includes an Afterword.

For a limited time only, Bast Books is offering “Illyria, My Love” for 99 cents on all retailers worldwide.
