So You Want to Make an eBook?

You'll often hear people talk about using an automated program to convert to eBooks, and say it's good enough. Heck, I thought that too. What I - and so many others - have found, is that no automated converter is perfect. We've found that knowing how to make an eBook by hand gives us control when the programs don't co-operate.

Overview

You'll often hear people talk about using an automated program to convert to eBooks, and say it's good enough. Heck, I thought that too. What I - and so many others - have found, is that no automated converter is perfect. We've found that knowing how to make an eBook by hand gives us control when the programs don't co-operate.

Whether you use another converter or an automated system (like Smashwords), I think it's vital that authors have a reference in order to maintain control over their own work.

It's like having the manual for doing an oil change on your car. Even if you always go to SpeedyWombatLube, having that choice - and the knowledge on how to fix your car if they screw up or go out of business - is real power.

I wrote this book to be accessible to a computer-literate (but not guru, wizard, or sysadmin) level. I avoid lots of obscure technical details, but walk you through the steps to do a basic conversion using free tools - and show you where references are to find out more yourself.
