I am currently making my novel an eBook and I was wondering about the three asterisks that you see to indicate a change in scenes... Is it acceptable to use an asterism before and after a scene in one chapter? What are some other ways you can use asterisms in your book? I have seen one book where there was like 10 stars instead of the usual three. My understanding is that it is used to instantly change scenes in a chapter. How many times are you allowed to change scenes in a chapter before a reader is overwhelmed?
