Another month has passed, so another opportunity for some reviews.

As a Kindle owner, I regularly have to convert epub files to mobi files. There’s an application called Kindlegen for that. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always work, because some epub files have settings that Kindlegen doesn’t understand, or the file ends up having a strange title.
With some knowledge of epubs you can fix these errors yourself. I’ll look at two problems I ran into:
- The author name or book title is not correct.
- The language isn’t set.
Whenever you write a story, you have to choose who you’re writing as, how the story will be narrated, and in what tense. I’d like to focus on narrative voice in this one: first, second, and third person. Of course, narrative tense is also important, as is which character you choose as a viewpoint, but in this post I’m focusing on the voice.
