Online sales of eBooks have exploded recently, and the trend will only continue with the availability of low-cost technology. Unfortunately, guidelines on how to properly format an eBook to sell on Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble NOOK, Smashwords, and other distributors are terse and geared toward web developers rather than self-publishers. Templates and third-party programs ad Online sales of eBooks have exploded recently, and the trend will only continue with the availability of low-cost technology. Unfortunately, guidelines on how to properly format an eBook to sell on Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble NOOK, Smashwords, and other distributors are terse and geared toward web developers rather than self-publishers.

    This is EXACTLY the book I was looking for! I have been trying to teach myself how to format eBooks for years now. After lots of trial and error, I have been (mostly) successful with some formats. And then I got to Smashwords, and I just about gave up. I read this book, and now I have successfully published an illustrated children's book on Smashwords (not an easy task) after only one day. I recommend this ten times over. SO glad I found this book.
