This course will be opening soon once the vouchers are set. I want some beta students to take the course and comment on its weaknesses, suggest an improvement, and tell me what worked.

The course will guide you in the tasks of turning a word processing fiction or non-fiction manuscript into an eBook.


  • An Amazon Kindle Mobi eBook
  • An Epub eBook for Apple, Nook, Kobo

You will use Open Office or Microsoft Word software to write the book manuscript. How to turn to manuscript into HTML code will be addressed. Styling of the HTML code by CSS will be shown to you.


  • Open Office or Word processor
  • Internet HTML conversion website
  • Notepad++ my favorite editor
  • Sigil software will create Kindle and non-Kindle eBooks at will.
  • Lectures, video screen captures of eBook production tasks. Coupled with a workbook in PDF, Epub, or Mobi format.

You will get your hands dirty creating four eBooks, two for fiction work and two for non-fiction. Writing templates for Word or OpenOffice are provided to you for download. Except for Microsoft Word the software I demonstrate to create eBooks are free. Note I said; you will create eBooks. I show you how and answer questions about the self-publishing tasks you perform. You may refer to my four eBooks as your behind the scenes reference.

This course will not teach you how to write, or produce paperback books. It’s all about making eBooks. You must do the exercises to get hands on learning. Otherwise, it’s just armchair learning not put in practice. Yes, I will mentor you to create eBooks.

Today I sent my newest non-fiction eBook out into the cruel world to earn  a living for me! The books topic is self-publishing. It will be nice for me if it makes passive income for me. There is nothing better than receiving OPM. Other People’s Money spends well when I receive it.

I gently lead the reader from their created manuscript to self-publishing a properly formatted eBook for Amazon Kindle or other ePub readers. You won’t learn how to write a book. You will instead learn how to produce one starting with a word processor. Convert the manuscript into an HTML file and style with a CSS stylesheet.

Your will be shown the methodology and tools to do so when you buy it at Amazon eBooks https://www.amazon.com/How-Guide-Easier-Publishing-Beginners-ebook/dp/B01GIT4UM0  or through one of Draft2Digital’s ePub distributors. The software product Sigil is the real key to producing ePub eBooks.

Not using Smashwords as an eBook distributor this time.



PublishXpress website has an application that will turn a Word docx file into an ePub and a Mobi file. For those who publish with Word this might be a good tool to investigate. I’m not an affiliate for this company.

I tried it and it did do the conversions. Don’t know how long the website will be up. I hope forever (smile). Anyone who uses it and likes the output; please send me a comment on it.
