Overview

The Quick and Dirty Guide to What You're Looking For...

When I started the process of designing my first e-book, I found the process daunting. But I was determined to get what I wanted: an aesthetically beautiful, interactive, and easy-to-read novel. After four hardcore months of learning Adobe InDesign, Adobe Photoshop, HTML, CSS, and about 5 different e-book design programs as well as the uploading process for four different online book vendor sites (Kobo.com, etc.), I created a book I was proud to call my own.

I originally wrote this guide for myself, so that I wouldn't have to remember everything I learned. I wanted an easy checklist and simple guide that I could reference no matter what part of the process I was in.

I've taken that guide much further since then, and this is what you're seeing here. This e-book design booklet is meant to guide you step-by-step through the entire process, from choosing a design program to uploading your file to all the major online bookstores and everything in between.

Dying to create an enhanced (interactive) e-book but don't know where to begin learning? Want stunning chapter glyphs; embellishments like Drop Caps and Graphical Titles; or a Hyperlinked Glossary? Or do you just want to focus on creating a simple, clean file that you can upload anywhere with no fuss? You've definitely come to the right place!

So snag your copy of this useful guide to learn basic and more advanced coding and design techniques to make your novel unique, interactive, and beautiful. We'll cover e-book format conversion, ePub validation, coding for interactive elements, and much, much more.

Don't miss out!

    ATTENTION MOONCLAN!!! IMPORTANT!

    Hello everyone! At the request of your leader, Moonclan has been chosen to be one of the clans available to be voted on in the running to become the fifth clan of the pact clans. Pact clans? What? What's she blabbing about? Well if you want to find out, then go to "impact codes" first result and "discovers cats" 13th result and read my posts. They explain a lot. I explained how this voting process will work at "discover cats" second result. Silverstar, you have the option to post a speech explaining why Moonclan should become the fifth pact clan at "fifth pact" first result. My advice, make a good impression! So yep! Hopefully I didn't confuse you too much! May Starclan light your path! ~ Lilywolf, Pact Clan Organizer

    I padded up to Graystreak. "We finally have an actual leader! I wonder who is going to be deputy." I sighed, "You must be excited about the journey to the Moonstone aren't you?"

    "You'll get used to it," I reassure,"Alright, it time we go to the moonstone... and remember, once we enter the moonstone, u will not be allowed to speak, and once u receive ur nine lives, u will not be able to share ur dreams with any other cats, and once u start receiving strange dreams I'm here to help u interpret them, u can tell me as little or as much as u want to share about ur dreams. Just know that I'm here for u.
