I need Kindle and Nook test subjects…!

Hey Lovecraftian friends!  I hope everyone is having a great week so far.  If you have a Kindle or a Nook, I could use your help: I’m tweaking the Kindle/Nook version of issue #4, and I could use a few test subjects.  I need to make sure it looks readable and reasonably professional on both units.  Anyone want to help me out today?  If so, please comment below.

  1. Haven’t got a kindle, but have a kindle app on my tablet. Which should be the same. If that is ok, I am ready for testing whatever you need tested. 🙂

  2. I’ve got a Kindle and I’d be happy to beta for you. Warning though, I was one of the last ones on the Kindle bus so I’m still learning how to work the durn thang.

  6. I downloaded the issue to my Kindle and read it this afternoon, excellent job, Mike! The formatting was perfect, the only small thing I noticed was the graphics were on the dark side, but the text was fine in both portrait and landscape versions.

  7. I did a quick scan on the Color Nook and it looks fine. Did not seeing any weird formatting issues. One note. On the color nook, the tiny illustrations are a little disappointing. Since I have the color version, would be cool to see those filling the page to the margin at least 🙂 But understand that might impact file size.

  8. I loaded it onto my nook and it looked fine. It didn’t quite fill the screen, however. I think an epub might have worked better than a PDF, but I was able to read all the text.

  9. Reporting in as a wiling (and fully insured) test subject.

    Also I have some slight experience with building ebooks in various formats. Nothing professional yet, but as soon as I get this d@mn novel done …

    Anywho, I’d be honored to test for you!

  10. I put my Kindle email to subscribe. Silly me, your email is a No-Reply so it wouldn’t work. I’d love to be a part of the testing. Sign me up.
    Cheers,
