How to build an e-book (handout)

At the latest meeting of Northern California Publishers & Authors (NCPA), the topic was e-books.

Stephanie Chandler discussed the current e-book market and marketing for authors. (An interesting factoid: PDF e-books are still selling strongly!)

I discussed my experience building e-books and gave out a handout explaining the steps for building an e-book based on the InDesign file for the print version of the book. While I took screenshots of the process, the handout includes just the facts, ma’am. Maybe in another blog post . . .
