Linking Images to TOC content

Well, I just got the ‘skinny’ from Smashwords today. I wanted to use an Image as the Title/Author Heading for a short story colleciton. Then link the TOC text back to that image. I can do this for Kindle and it’s gorgeous, but lucky for me, I hesitated when formatting the Smashwords doc which distributes to Sony and lots of others. Instead I put leading text above the Title/Author image, and linked the TOC to the leading text. Not nearly so pretty. But when Smashwords finally answered my question, they said that they couldn’t support that function at this time.

Hmm, I know I’ve done this before, linked a TOC entry (Excerpt of…) back to the thumbnail cover for the excerpt. I wonder why this is not supported now?

Oh well, just one other reason to be glad that Smashwords is letting us upload an EPUB in 2012 besides the normal Word doc.
