  2. 2. Chapter 1 This template is based on Smashwords style guide revision 9.19.10. Works with Smashwords autovetter without errors and produces quite good epub and mobibooks, including TOC. My books based on this template has been accepted to premium catalog. License text is for free book and copied directly from Smaswords style guide. Style is Default Text and it uses first line indents. Continue paragraph as long as needed andthen press enter and new paragraph as the same first line indent. Heading is in different style Heading. I have used Chapter in the chapter title so Smashwordsautomatically creates TOC for mobi and epub formats. License text is for free book. Lines between book title and author may be different. I have usedjust like in this sample and also so that there are no lines between book title and author name.Smashwords recommends to have just 3-4 empty lines. I have used max three empty lines. Chapter 2 New Chapter starts. There are no empty lines between end of chapter and chapter titles. It isdone by changing spacing in the style Chapter 3 And so story continues until the end where I use ### to signal the end of book and thesomething about the author. I have used center alignment below. ### About the Author: Sami Salkosuo was born 1973 in Finland.
