Prepare and Format Your eBook Files
The formatting of your book is incredibly important and this step is fairly involved, so don’t expect to get it done successfully on the first try or in a single day’s time.
You will find that different distribution channels require different formats, which can be a real struggle when trying to ensure that your text displays correctly across all devices. This is important and you must test your ebook before making it available to purchase, or risk losing your formatting and having your text appear garbled and mutilated on different reading devices.
The formatting will likely need to be different for each site you use to self-publish your books. What looks great in print may not be readable on a Kindle device, and the same PDF file you upload to Lulu may look awful in your Createspace version.
