“From M.S. Word Manuscript to Kindle and Nook” – Saturday, October 20, 9:00-10:00 AM
Supposedly, anyone can take a Microsoft Word document and convert it into a Kindle and Nook file. There are many ins-and-outs, twists-and-turns, dead-end streets, and pitfalls a-plenty. Learn how to convert your file successfully, and get it up on Amazon and Barnes and Noble for sale as an eBook making you a published author. Besides just converting your file, this presentation includes: inserting jpeg pictures, creating a book cover, writing the back cover blurb, finding the right title, and selecting keywords and categories.
