1.00 dollar = 100 cents
0.50 dollars = 50 cents
0.01 dollars = 1 cent
0.005 dollars = 0.5 cents
0.0045 dollars = 0.45 cents

0.0045 dollars = 0.45 cents

Yep. $0.0045 does equal 0.45c (which is a little under half a cent).

And Timothy's  '$0.01 is one cent' is correct (I added the $), and $0.005 is half a cent, so $0.0045 is just a tiny bit less than half a cent.

Everyone needs to have either the $ or the c to indicate what they mean. 0.01 means one cent if it is $0.01, and it is one hundredth of a cent if it is 0.01c

Don't think so.

0.01 is one cent. 0.005 is half a cent.

CHAPTER ONE

WHATíS A MAN GOTTA DO TO KILL HIMSELF?

Tags: Today I met the girl Iím going to marry, Deadly doings and heavenly hellfire, Too brash to live, too bold to die

That works for me (and I don't think you need the word "tag" in there). Dave Eggers has done it this way in a couple of his books (forget which).

CHAPTER ONE

WHATíS A MAN GOTTA DO TO KILL HIMSELF?

Today I met the girl Iím going to marry. Deadly doings and heavenly hellfire.
Too brash to live. Too bold to die.

Do you think it would work if I did it this way:

I could use the best for the chapter title. But for those chapters where I have 3 or 4 good possibilities, I could write ďTags:Ē under the title, like they do at the end of blog posts where they use various phrases to summarize or indicate what was in the post. And then write the other titles, but separated by commas. And not in capitals which the actual title would be.

The difference would be, in mine, the tags would be at the beginning of each chapter rather than at the end of a blog post.

An example [these arenít quotes from what the hero says]:

CHAPTER ONE

WHATíS A MAN GOTTA DO TO KILL HIMSELF?

Tags: Today I met the girl Iím going to marry, Deadly doings and heavenly hellfire, Too brash to live, too bold to die

***

or would Teasers be a better word than Tags?

Iíve seen one blog where the word ďlabelĒ was used.

I do a single, clickable chapter heading, then between the chapter heading and text a centered summary of the chapter in small caps using a different font.
18
I never read chapter titles but I might notice it and find it odd. Consider if that is really what you want, to focus the reader's attention on the chapter headings.

So options:

Pick one:

Funny quote about a dog.
Funny quote about a cat.
Funny quote about a fish.

All together:

Funny quote about a dog. Funny quote about a cat. Funny quote about a fish.

Third option:
The dog, the cat and the fish.

Take the essence of each funny quote and put them together, then the reader will have the impact of the quote in the story.

Just a suggestions.

What are Amazon doing now? [Public] / No 10-digit ISBN?
« Last post by spin52 on February 23, 2020, 04:54:11 AM »
I just uploaded a new paperback, using a KDP-issued ISBN, and got the standard 13-digit number. But then, instead of the additional 10-digit ASIN on the Bookshelf, I got a second e-book type ASIN, starting with B0 ..
I went back over my other books, and all of them, including one published only a few months ago, have both a 13-digit ISBN and a 10-digit ASIN, with no letters. The 10-digit number isn't just a truncated version of the 13-digit one, but has different numbers.
So is this something new? And does it matter? It's just that some promo sites ask for a 10-digit ISBN, which I don't seem to have for this book.
