.epub Simplified

Zipped Website Container/Organizer for the eReader

If the book you are writing were a web site, it would have parts like:

  • Words
  • Pictures
  • Fonts
  • Links

So ..., "yourbook.epub" could be opened in an Apple iPad, for instance, as a book container with all those parts inside (and maybe more).

Kindle does not use the epub format, BUT it is such a large market opportunity that it should get some writers and publishers attention. 

 

 

EDITOR'S CHOICE: Authors and publishers should use Amazon Kindle as a major market distribution channel that will spread availability through several devices using the Kindle application.

Kindle Apps are available for iPhone, Windows, Mac, Blackberry, and iPad.

K.I.S.S

Keep It Simple Stupid (I'm reminding myself:)

  • NOTE: Amazon converts to the Amazon Kindle proprietary .mobi format for you
  • You can try fancier formatting than what's listed below, but it is not advised
  • Use MS-Word "default" "normal" body text 11-12 point
  • Use "Heading 1" for chapter titles
  • Tabs are bad
  • Spacebar indents are bad
  • Tables are bad
  • Photo books are bad
  • Extra paragraph returns are bad
  • Large and exotic fonts are bad
  • Columns are bad
  • Text boxes are bad
  • Footnotes are bad
  • Align images with text
  • You must have Copyrights

Every quality word processor should have an 'Export' or 'Save As' feature for the .epub file extension and structure.

Apple's iWork Pages software is ideally suited to this export feature evolution because it already works well with the XML code that .epub uses.

MS-Word has an excuse for being slow to adopt the Export as EPUB feature because of their .docx court case setback.
