Can anyone help with some simple HTML code?

I am just finishing up my newest book for CreateSpace and Kindle and THIS time, I am trying to “ace” how to add some simple HTML code to my book description. I have tried over and over today to make it work, without success. 😦

If anyone can help with this, I’d be oh, so grateful!

It’s only a few paragraphs of text to do and if you are familiar with using HTML, I’m probably missing something soooo simple but I just can’t find what it is.

CreateSpace keeps prompting me to “close the b. (as in bold tag) but I’ve gone over the text several times, checked there was no spaces to remove, but it still doesn’t work.

If anyone can help, I’ll be sure to send you a free copy (print or ebook) of the book when it’s completed. I’m not going to mention the title right now but it is an inspirational book, I think a lot of my readers will enjoy! 🙂

Thanks so much if you can help! 🙂

  2. I know some HTML code, write to me and let me know exactly what you need.

  3. Genie, that’s very kind of you. 🙂

    Another blogger at my poetry blog is trying to add this code for me today, I’ll see how that goes. But I will let you know if I still need some help. 🙂

  4. Still trying to work this out as of today.

    I tried another copy and paste from another blog pal and it still wouldn’t go through. I also wrote to CreateSpace to ask why (again) that they make this sooooo hard. Makes no sense. Thanks again to all the bloggers who offered to help and have helped with this, much appreciated. 🙂

  5. I wish I could help, if my son was here, he’s an Internet Specialist and Web designer, but he’s away on his second honeymoon lol now I remember having one of those …..for dummies I think I have on html, If I can find it I’ll mail it to you, unless you think it’ll be too late….

  6. Thanks for the offer Lorraine but I already had 4 blog pals TRYING to help with this.

    In the end, I just did my own VERY simple code, with line breaks and nothing else and it finally went through at Amazon. WHY they make this so complicated to write a good-looking book description, is beyond me.:(

    They all look ok now for all my books. A couple that I formatted with a book description design tool over at AMC look even better than ok. 🙂 Maybe Amazon/CreateSpace will take my advice and simplify this whole process for authors. It’s to their advantage too.

Thanks so much for your comments!
