How I Created an Ebook Last Weekend

Hi, Friends,

I had a pretty great weekend - did you?

That's because I finally achieved one of the items on my publishing bucket list - publishing an ebook from my Masters research project. Here it is, in case you want to check it out now.

Since I'd already written the text, it was surprisingly easy to do, and I only needed two apps: Designrr and Kindle Direct Publishing.

Creating an Ebook with Designrr
Designrr's all about making content marketing and lead generation simple, so you can import content from a URL, Word doc, or PDF, and quickly turn it into an attractive ebook.  And you can edit the text you import, too. I describe the process in this article: How to Create an Ebook in 5 Steps Without Breaking a Sweat.

Go check it out; I'll still be here when you come back. :)

Publishing on Kindle
The great thing about Designrr is that I could export my ebook as a Kindle file, which made it really simple to upload it into Kindle Direct Publishing. A few minutes later, I had a brand new ebook on Amazon.

Of course, I didn't stop there, because KDP has a new function that lets you create a print on demand paperback right from the same interface. That part didn't go quite as smoothly, maybe because the things I'd taken out for Kindle (headers, page numbers and so on) had to go back in for print.

In the end, though, I figured it out, so here's what my new book looks like (if there's a blank space where the cover should be, try temporarily enabling images):


I have to say, I'm pretty happy with it.

Check it out when you get a minute.

If you have more questions about how I did it, hit reply and ask. I'm always happy to hear from you.

I'll email again soon. Thanks for letting me into your inbox.

Sharon
