Ok, for my latest i created it in both formats, but i guess i will stick to NP format. This was the first book with chapters, the others were just one short text. This latest one has 21 chapters and 386 pages 😄 - check out Doc Savage, Man of Bronze in the download area :)... Thanks for telling me about Bernies. Ill put single chapter stories in both formats since the losing track of where you had read it wouldn't really happen there...
