Publishing books in Kindle format has never been a better option for authors who want to reach their market and audience as directly as possible. But the hurdle most author/publishers find the most difficult is actually producing a clean, attractive, well-formatted Kindle e-book. The web is saturated with resources and communities supporting this endeavor, but accurate, up-to-date and truly useful information remains maddeningly hard to find. It's even harder for authors and publishers who want to go beyond the basics and create something better than what novice tools or a simple conversion from Word can produce.
This new book is what you need to clear that hurdle: a comprehensive guide to getting from Word or InDesign to a thoroughly professional, craft-published result — even with complex material! Far beyond the basics of formatting text in chapters, this guide covers the details of illustrations, tables, lists, footnotes and more... all with the aim of a maximum-quality result.
And added in the first revision: How to manage dual-format publication (Kindle & paper)!
This is not yet another "easy ways to do it" quick-reference for authors, and it's not another "all in one" guide to self-publishing. It's a complete and focused guide to the most difficult, misunderstood step: the process and techniques that turn a live book file into a polished Kindle publication! And it's completely up to date, freshly written by an experienced publication designer, veteran publisher and award-nominated writer.
While this guide is aimed at all serious Kindle publishers, some basic knowledge will help readers get the most from it:
Readers with less starting knowledge will find useful information as well, along with guides to acquiring those supporting skills needed to make the most of this valuable reference. Veteran Kindle publishers will find new insights and methods as well. No matter what your level of expertise, this is the guide every serious Kindle publisher needs!
