Smashwords Style Guide
on Aug. 27, 2013
I just read the book and really enjoyed it. I have not published a book yet and wanted to learn about formatting for e-books before I jumped into it to hopefully give me an edge and so, I haven’t put any of the tips into practice yet. The book is written in clear enough language that I understand what to do. There are a couple of things I didn’t understand as well but I think once I begin the actual formatting process the concepts will become clearer.
You will need Microsoft Word to follow this guide. A really awesome thing Mark Coker did was to include written and screen cap instructions on how to do everything for versions of Word as old as 2000 up to 2007 so no one is left struggling.
If you’ve never formatted your writing for e-books and feel lost, you should read this guide.
