Footnotes can enhance a novel, they can also visually detract. I’m considering adding humorous footnotes to my novel. They would show I’m well researched. Placing a footnote in Microsoft Word isn’t hard, but I’m not sure haw well superscript transfers from one document type to another.
EBooks have tremendous capability, but I’m sure if footnote standard exists. I’ll send out a handful of query letters, but will skip the superscript numbers within the text and offer sample footnotes, at the end. My word count which sits at 57k doesn’t include footnotes By early estimate, the footnotes would bump the word count to 62k.
