Welcome back!!To work the Introduction in while keeping a textbook layout and closely match the page numbers listed in the original prop, the Introduction may need to be trimmed down to one page.
This is what I have so far from provided pages without just pasting from other people's completed work, since I don't want to use other people's intellectual property without their express permission.
Thanks for that spreadsheet breakdown!
So here's what I'm thinking. Based off of my research, you don't usually count the title page, publisher/copyright page, contents and such as the actual page numbers. Usually the contents are roman numerals. The Introductions aren't technically counted either, but since it's labeled as page 4 then so be it.
Generally, "Each section of your book should start on a right-hand page. The title page is always a right-hand page, the table of contents begins on a right-hand page, chapter 1 begins on a right-hand page, and so on. " It seems the props team took liberties with how book pages should be laid out.
I tried to make each Chapter start on an odd page or the right hand page with a blank page on the left hand side, just to make it look "cleaner".
I'm attaching my first 15 pages to show the kind of flow I'm working with. Starting on page 4 with the introduction (which probably start on an odd page/right hand side), I actually start Chapter 1 on page 7 instead of 6. Now the question is how much of a stickler do we want to be? I can make the chapter start on page 6/left hand side or we can do what is "generally accepted" and leave it on page 7.
Also, this mystery section is making me crazy! Here I'm using Photoshop to try and get a clearer image of the text and I swear that last letter looks like an X.
I added the letter underneath for comparison. So if the word is not "Jinx", what other suggestions are there?
Also also, let's get some creative writers out there to help write these sections out! The Dangerous Potions section in my PDF is open for some love. We can also add more images to reduce the amount we need to write. I mean, we will need 347 images, so let's not be shy with the pictures!
