Ebook Formatting



This eBook was initially created for authors seeking to distribute their resources through Exponential. The scope of the book was expanded to serve any author considering self- publishing via eBooks. This eBook is a supplemental resource to our resource titled: eBook Authoring: A Simple Guide to Authoring eBooks.

Formatting content for eBook distribution is a confusing process for most people. This guide aims to painlessly cut through the confusion and help you create a manuscript that is easily converted to the most popular eBook formats. By following the roadmap in this guide, you will produce an eBook in three of the most popular formats with a relatively consistent look regardless of the eReader used:

• ePub (iPhone, iPad, Nook and other Android Tablets)

• pdf (readable on eReaders and on computer screens)

• mobi (Kindle)

The roadmap follows three basic steps:

  1. Manuscript in Word
  2. Save as PDF
  3. Translate to eReader formats
