Recently I read this sentence somewhere on Twitter:
“I’m a positive writer and when that doesn’t work, I eat chocolate.”
Made me laugh, as it fit’s perfectly to me, even I am not a writer per se, more a blogger and compiler of non-fiction guide books. E-book formatting companies often dread non-fiction as they are the hardest to convert into an appealing layout and they sometimes charge more for this kind of e-books. Well, it is more work for sure than to convert a novel due to many small chapters, all with their own headline and lots of lists, often numerous images…
Short after I read this “chocolate” sentence, I discovered a non-fiction e-book on Amazon which touted the benefits of chocolate: How to Have Your Chocolate and Lose Weight Too! Written by Michelle Van Otten. Well, I was hooked and after discovering the 5-star reviews, I ordered it.
I was up for a nice surprise. Not only by its content, which I just scanned, as I had no time yet to read it yet, but more by the great formatting job of this e-book. One of the very few books which has a really beautiful, clean layout. Easy to read and very appealing to the eye. An amazing e-book design job!
See for yourself on Amazon: Click on the books cover and you can “Look Inside”. Prime Members: borrow for free from their Kindle. And if you need an affirmation for your chocolate cravings: It is only $2.99 for Kindle.
