i certainly did, drg... and i assume james did, as well... but nothing that former typesetter wrote conflicts with the advice james and i have given, so i'm at a loss as to why you would think we need to be reminded of it...

I've been away from the WD scene for a little while. While the controversy over how to indicate line breaks is interesting, was the OP's question ever answered?
Read samples of my Martian series (by Dorothy Piper) and two romances (by Joni Havel) on Smashwords.
Hard copies of all are on Amazon.

Chapter titles are great for MG and YA stories. They give a clue to what's coming up, are fun to reinterpret once the chapter's over, and help readers to later find the spot that something happened earlier in the story. My YA novel has *two* titles per chapter, both with double meanings and none with spoilers. Readers who go back to read just the chapter titles (and I was one of those readers as a kid) have a lot of fun with them.
