Tauchen Sie ein in das vibrierende New York der 30er und 40er Jahre, folgen Sie einer unvergesslichen Heldin in eine Zeit, in der alles auf dem Spiel steht. New York – von der Marinewerft in Brooklyn zu den schillernden Nachtclubs in Manhattan, von den Villen auf Long Island zu den Absteigen in der Bronx. 1942 sind die Männer an der Front, die Frauen stehen in der Fabrik. Aber Anna möchte ein besseres Leben. Seitdem der Vater verschwunden ist, sorgt sie für ihre Mutter und die pflegebedürftige Schwester. Während Anna den Vater nicht vergessen kann, verfolgt sie bestimmt ihren großen Traum: Unter die gigantischen Kriegsschiffe an den Docks möchte sie tauchen, um sie zu reparieren. Ein Beruf zu gefährlich für eine Frau – genauso wie die New Yorker Unterwelt, in der sich die Spur ihres Vaters verlor. Der Pulitzer-Preisträgerin und New York Times-Bestsellerautorin Jennifer Egan ist ein Meisterwerk mit erzählerischem Sog, mitreißender Atmosphäre und unvergesslichen Figuren gelungen – ein großes Zeitpanorama!

The self-publisher's bible! In this clear and entertaining ten-step guide, now in its eighth edition, a prolific American author tells how he formats his books using free software for upload to online bookstores. The secret, he explains, is to use the universal "epub" format to create a single e-book file that will be accepted by every digital retailer, from Amazon.com through Barnes & Noble, the Apple iBookstore, and smaller booksellers like the Canada-based Kobo. "Most beginners write their books in Word or Open Office," Notjohn says, "and then they up to upload the same document for conversion to an e-book. Sometimes it works; more often it doesn't, because these programs litter the file with hidden formatting. The result can be a disaster." Instead, the word-processing document should be converted to clean HTML, the markup language used to create a web page. (All e-books are web pages at heart, and the Kindle and other e-book readers are just special-purpose web browsers.) The conversion from document to HTML file takes seconds. It can then be plugged into a simple template that Notjohn includes in this Guide and also makes available on his blog for anyone to use. He also supplies a style sheet to format the book for best appearance on the Kindle, Fire tablet, the various Kindle apps, as well as on competing tablets and e-book readers. If all else fails, there's Plan B: a stripped-down template for novels and for non-fiction that consists mostly of text. He concludes with a chapter on how best to present your e-book on the Kindle platform, with hints on encrypting the book, copyrighting it, and pricing it for the greatest return. And new this year: a chapter on adapting the e-book to a print edition. With illustrations and screenshots. Revised and updated 2017edition.
