1. I'm not understanding how much or how little I should worry about photo placement. Reading Amazon's own guide to formatting for Kindle, it just says photos should be inserted through the menu and not copied and pasted, and says they should be centered. Should I worry about what paragraph they should precede or follow? If I do worry about that, will the Kindle formatting follow the way I set it up? (I'm using Word, if it matters.)
On a related note, does Kindle re-size the photos in any way? I'm assuming I should put them in at an appropriate size. Is that correct?
Yes, when I get to the place where I want to preview on the Kindle platforms, which I hope will happen in the next 72 hours, I can answer this, but it would be so nice to know now.
2. I'm questioning the number of links I have back to my site. Putting in all the appropriate links (which are many) to articles on the site seemed smart back in the time when I was selling an e-book only from my site, but now I'm wondering whether I have too many. Is that possible? I'm using maybe only one or two links to other sites within the text, although I have a concluding resource section that shows the names of other organizations providing useful information, together with the current link.
I figure I have more control over my own links than other people's, so had wanted to keep "outside" links to a minimum. Is that faulty thinking?
Thanks in advance for your advice.
