Formatting Ebooks for Amazon and Smashwords

If you know HTML, getting your book set up for Amazon Kindle publishing and Smashwords is not so tough. In fact with Smashwords, you really only need to take note of how they want your Word document when it gets input to their 'meatgrinder.'

On the other hand, unless you know HTML to at least 'competent' level, then you are better off getting a professional service to do Kindle formatting for you. Too many independent ebooks are poorly formatted.

If you want to do it yourself, then you can do an even better job by following the advice of Guido Henkel, who will walk you through it and provide  fine-tuning tips to get your ebook looking very professional. I'm leading up to that in the next few days. I'll let you know how it goes.

  1. Arranging is genuinely a bad dream on Smashwords. Unforgiving words, however unless you know about line breaks, the contrasts between page design and eBook page formats, text dimensions, and passage returns, at that point it won't be simple for you to get your eBook on the Smashwords Premium Catalog without experiencing a considerable measure of dissatisfaction and time. Smashwords gives a free 36 page manage that must be taken after to the letter or your Microsoft Word document won't be changed over by Smashword's product converter into the records for the distinctive tablets.
