721 Thanks Laura, 412 pages it is. Doesn't matter if they are numbered or not.

Kindle numbers are fictious as they aren't a fixed numbering system, only epub or pdfs are used for numbering. So the 600 is just Amazon logic, not! LOL

721 Laura,

Straight from the Librarian Manual:

The number of pages in a book is meant to include all content except for advertisements and preview chapters for other books. Included end material may include acknowledgments, afterwords, appendices, glossaries, indexes, notes, and suggested discussion questions.

Introductory material paged using roman numerals is not included in the total page count.


So I'd say you would include the author interview, as it is about that book, but not the pages about the other books.

Is everything else but the page numbers the same as your copy of the book?

So tell me the revised number of pages and I'll fix it and anything else that needs fixing.

721 Laura, a couple of questions with my "librarian hat" on.

What is the ISBN of your boook?
What is the last page of the story?
Are you including stuff after the last page of the story in your number count, and if so, what? Some things count, others do not.

Touched by an Alien (Katherine "Kitty" Katt, #1) by Gini Koch Alien Tango (Katherine "Kitty" Katt, #2) by Gini Koch

Review of Touched By a Alien

Love this book and yet it took a long time, for me, to read. Guess it was just because there was so much going on.

It was like a hyped up X Files episode from the Aliens perspective and not Mulder and Scullys.

Our intrepid heroine Katherine "Kitty" Katt is snarky, impulsive, clever and just darn good fun. We meet her as she takes out a monster who she later learns is an alien parasite infecting angry people. She calls them "fuglies".

Jef Martini, our alien hero, an empath, immediately falls in love with her, and seriously freaks her out.

The whole supporting cast of characters including the Kitty's Mossad, anti-terroist consultant mom and her dad the NASA cryptologist masquerading as a history professor are priceless.

Glad I've already got the next 2 in the series to read.

Oh, and all the covers are works of art!

Review of Alien Tango

Book #2 of the Kitty Katt series and it was just as good as the first one.

Again a super hyped up X Files episode on drugs. LOL. This time the evil villans are human and not Superbeings from Outter Space.

Kitty and Jef and the rest of the Alpha team have been training and doing the usual when things go to hell and it seems that everyone is trying to kill them. It's political, it's a stalker, it's the potential mother-in-law from hell; pick all of the above.

Another fun filled episode, looking forward to the next one.
