formatting_an_ebookPreparing to publish a book? While it's handy-dandy that Amazon's KDP program let's you simply upload a word document to the site, the auto-formatting leaves much to be desired. To create a professional book, format it on your own before uploading to Amazon or any other platform.

Here are three tools for formatting an eBook that I have used and can personally recommend. These vary greatly in skill level with Vellum being the easiest and InDesign the most complex. Scrivener may be the most economical option, but InDesign is a most for design professionals.

All of the formatting software I recommend below offer free trial options. Test drive them all and let me know which you prefer for your publishing adventures!
