    It’s a nice template but it’s not correctly arranged for a novel. Inside cover is in wrong place, Chapter 1 should be page 1 and on the right and I’ve never seen a professionally published book with dialogue done this way…to list a few.

    Hi Marcia, thank you! I just downloaded it and am investigating.

  • Anne-Marie Concepcion says:

    Excellent. Thank you Mike!

  • Marigail Sexton says:

    I see that the body text has a paragraph style that is left justify, yet the text is fully justified. How did you accomplish that?
