Smashwords have raised the bar regarding formatting standards. I discovered this when I resubmitted my profiles to get then listed in the sci-fi category and they were flagged as having a variety of formatting errors.

I had to take the whole Meddlers in Time manuscript, paste to notepad and then copy back to Word and reformat, thus stripping out all the hidden Word formatting- a mess, as I wrote this on five different PC's!

Formatting for scrolling ebook readers is different to formatting for the printed page and the 'smarter' readers wind up adding spaces and breaks if you don't keep the formatting very 'clean'

Still, it's done now!
