ebook behind the scenes

I feel like this post should be titled, “ebook: the good, the bad, the ugly.”  It was SUCH an undertaking, and one I enjoyed every single second of.  I thought some of you might want a look into behind the scenes. It all began some time ago last July when I had an idea. [...]
