The Front matter of a traditional book needs to move when structuring an eBook. “Essentially you can’t have 10 pages of Front Matter in an ebook. It needs to go to the rear.” (Simon Worthington, Mute Magazine)
Insert: Table of Contents
A Table of Contents is an essential element of many types of books, and is essentially the book element that is the the ‘road-map’ for your reader. If needed for your book, upon completion of your ‘core’ manuscript content, please prepare a Table of Contents (TOC) listing the parts, sections, chapters, and headings that you feel are appropriate.
Parts, Sections, Chapters
Glossary, Bibliography, Index, Further Reading, Extra Voices, Notes, Footnotes
Art, Images, Figures, Graphs, Tables, Data visualization, Image series
Some of the elements were taken from dogearpublishing.
