January 27 Meeting: How to Create a Professional-Looking e-Book

Book Publishers Northwest starts 2015 with a look at ebook formating. Anyone interested in publishing e-books will learn the basics of e-book development, enabling them to make a well-informed decision about whether to “do it yourself” or hire a professional e-book formatter/developer.

Julie Klein and Marcella Van Oel will illustrate the steps to format a Word document that can be easily uploaded to Smashwords for distribution through that vendor. Also they will talk about converting a Word document to HTML, creating a professional e-book ready to upload to ePUB or Kindle.

The January 27 meeting starts at 6 pm at Room 223 in the Good Shepherd Center, 4649 Sunnyside Avenue North, Seattle.
