One of the many tasks indie publishers are required to do is format their manuscript so that it presents well on whatever ereader they’ve chosen to publish on.
If you’re like most people, you’ve probably written or ‘built’ your book using MS Word. This word processor has a lot of capabilities, but contains a fair amount of hidden formatting that must be stripped out before uploading up to the Kindle or any other ereading device. Otherwise, unfavorable results like unwanted spaces or overlapping words can occur.
Smashwords, a distributor of indie published ebooks to the Nook, Kobo and iPad, has compiled a free and comprehensive Style Guide. It walks you through the task of removing code from Word files so that the manuscript is ready for submission to all e-publishing platforms.
I am pleased to announce that my novel excerpt, When Truth Awakens, is now available in the Kindle Store.
