Overview

So you’re thinking about selling ebooks, but you don’t know where to start. This ebook covers beginning formatting, including screen shots for Microsoft Word 2007 users (users of other programs will have to adapt the steps to their own word-processing program).
You do not need to know any XHTML or HTML coding to use these ebook formatting techniques. You do not need any conversion software.
You will learn:
• How to format .doc files to be uploaded to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords for distribution to Apple, Kobo, Sony, and more.
• Some typesetting tips to make your manuscript look more professional.
• Workarounds and troubleshooting for common issues.
• Pointers for more advanced formatting techniques.
I don’t recommend this ebook for more advanced users, but for authors beginning to publish their ebooks independently. This process may appear complex, but it’s set up so the worst of the complexities you will only have to deal with once (to set up a template).

Meet the Author

Every summer as kids, we would host one group of cousins or another and jump off hay bales, create mazes by crawling the patterns through the tall grass, and steal green apples out of the garden. We also branded calves, killed chickens, and stole steak knives to threaten skunks with. But that’s growing up on a farm for you.
Now I write fantasy, science fiction, and horror—and most of it comes from the worlds that I created as a farm kid, one way or another.
My first novel, Choose Your Doom: Zombie Apocalypse, lets you choose how you’re going to fight a zombie invasion. Warning: you die. Sometimes, you turn into a zombie and then you die. But can you save the world before you kick the bucket? See any major bookstore in order to buy a copy.
“This is how I like my zombies: fast and funny. Choose this book, and you won’t be choosing your doom. You’ll be choosing hours of gooey, gory hilarity.”
- Steve Hockensmith, New York Times best-selling author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls
