Use Italics and Bold Text To Add Emphasis To Your Headings
You can add emphasis to certain words or phrases in your heading1 and heading2.
To use italics, add a * before and after the text in your headings or book description. Italics example:
She *desperately* scanned the horizon.
To bold certain words or phrases, add ** before and after the text. Bold example:
This baby needs a nap **right now**.
(The * is only in the examples above to make clear how to add them to your heading. They will not be displayed on the book page.)
Center Your Headings
To center your heading1 or heading2, use -= at the beginning of your heading and =- at the end. Center example:
-=This heading is now centered!=-
