Take an existing ebook from Word, Pages, InDesign, or even a plain text editor, and convert it to a Kindle format.
(musical tones) - [Voiceover] Hello there. My name is Tony Harmer, and welcome to this course on Creating Ebooks for the Kindle. In this title, I will take you through some of what you need to know to crack open your Epub with free software, such as Sigil or Calibre. I'll show you how to fix some of the simple, common problems from a range of different creation software and/or processes.
It won't matter how you've arrived at your manuscript, whether you created it in Microsoft Word or Adobe InDesign, or even a plain text editor, by the end of this course, you'll have a good knowledge on how to get a decent file that should covert across to Kindle just fine.
