Re: Garamond 12, too big?
This explains in more detail why to avoid TMR. Thanks. As to the preview--I find them annoying. They don't pique my interest and as an earlier post said, you run the risk of skipping a purchase because you think you already read it. A blurb about the upcoming next book in the series is fine. Maybe.

Re: Garamond 12, too big?

I always wondered where the term 'leading' came from - Thanks

Re: Garamond 12, too big?

As to the issue with leading point size, if you use Microsoft Word here is a nice article that explains it.

http://blogs.msdn.com/microsoft_office_word/archive/2007/10/23/what-does-single-spacing-really-mean-anyway.aspx

 

They expanded the point spacing for default single spacing in Word 2007.  According to the article, the line size in Word 2007 is roughly 20% larger in single space than the font point size (i.e., 10 point garamond = 12 point line size).  I think 12 point Garamond looks fine when set up for publishing with Microsoft Word 2007.  Note: older versions of MS Word seem to have an equal ratio of font point size to line size.
