From finished manuscript to virtual bookshelf

This e-book starts after a manuscript is written and explains the workflow for publishing a manuscript as an e-book. You'll learn about e-book formats and requirements, formatting in Word, using Calibre and Kindle Direct Publishing, and selling digital media on your book website and through online stores.
