    I have a completed book with 75,000 words and 18 chapters. This is my second book and I would like to be able to copy and paste my document pages of my story into the BAM DIY system. However, the system will not allow mw to cut and paste my book into your system. I need someone to walk me through this so we can move forward. The book is called Searching for the Jamaican King. Thank you.....
