Where can I find a guide on how to convert a Word-doc into e-book format (Kindl etc.)?

Has anyone experience about publishing e-books?

Regards
Heinrich

Kindle guide Jun 20, 2012

Hi Heinrich

There's a guide to publishing to kindle format here using a Word doc https://kdp.amazon.com/self-publishing/help?topicId=A17W8UM0MMSQX6

If you google 'publish ebook' there's a lot of how-to pages that come up.

Good luck with iticon_smile.gif

publishing step-by-step Jun 20, 2012

Hi Heinrich,

You can also go to www.lulu.com Their step-by-step instructions are easy to follow.
It's where I have my published e-books. And no, I don't get a commission for referals.icon_biggrin.gif

Much success!

TOPIC STARTER
Thank you both Jun 20, 2012

Now I just need to get the text, translate it and then publish it.

Just one issue more, can I put the content on my private site for download into e-book-devices? I do not want any money from it.

OOoFBTools Jun 21, 2012

OOoFBTools is a great extension for Apache OpenOffice/LibreOffice converting text documents into FictionBook2 format that can be further converted into virtually any other e-book format using Calibre.

can I put the content on my private site for download into e-book-devices?


What can you stop from this?
