Post A question regarding pictures in fiction books
I have an action adventure dinosaur story, and I have a picture for almost every chapter. Now, my book is an ebook (I'll try to do a print version later), but should I give a picture an entire page by itself, or should I make it smaller (like half a page) since ebook readers can zoom in on the picture if they wish? I tried finding the answer in other books of my genre, but most of them are not illustrated.

Post Re: A question regarding pictures in fiction books
I would say give it a full page. I read a lot of science fiction, and even some fantasy. :) Many of these books include maps. I find that trying to enlarge them (that is what zooming in does) often leaves you with parts cut off, and makes the "picture" harder to interpret. :? :hmm: This will also make it easier when you convert to a print version.
Good luck with you novel. :wink:

Thanks very much, Cattleman. I appreciate it. I think I will make the pictures full pages. :)
