The Pleasure of Reading A Well-Formatted eBook

eBooks

Do you own a reader of some sort? Say a Kindle or even an Ipad that can read not only iBooks, but also Kindles, and Nook books. If you do or someone close to you does you know the hassle of a poorly formatted eBook. This is not by far the steps of what you should do to get this right it’s a primer to help you start thinking about it. 

Writing and releasing an eBook is a content marketing strategy that could pull in potential leads and keep your existing customers engaged and informed about your business. Once I show a client how easy it is and a cool formatting tool they usually jump in ready to become an author. 

Digital media has made book writing and publishing more accessible to writers, content owners, professionals and even small businesses.  Yet the ease and accessibility of getting your book published in digital format, known as an eBook, should not be exempt from the standards set by what you may call now as old-school book print publishing. 

Many newbie writers apply in error the old adage to not judge a book by its cover.  But in reality, your readers would really mind reading and would get turned-off by a sloppily formatted and published eBook. 

 

Here are some tell-tale signs that your eBook’s format is below standards:

  1. Inconsistent font sizes
  2. Inconsistent font faces
  3. Paragraphs are not properly aligned, and indentations vary from one justification to another
  4. Too many typo errors

If you want to be taken seriously by your readers, invest your time in learning the ropes – both from the professional standards upheld by traditional print media publishing, as well as the creative flexibility and cool features that a self-published eBook could offer. The tools I use is can create and format your eBook so that your reader will be glued to the screen as they read your book. You can find out morejuliansmart.com here.
