In this course for self-published authors, you will learn how to format professional looking eBooks that will provide your readers with an enjoyable reading experience.
Nothing cries out amateur more for a self-published author than a badly formatted book.
At its worst, bad formatting can stop the reader from finishing your book and may even result in bad reviews.
Even books with minor formatting mistakes can result in the reader being distracted from the world that you have lovingly created and jolt them back into reality, thus spoiling their reading experience.
In this course, you will learn how to give your readers the best reading experience possible by compiling professional looking eBooks within the writing tool, Scrivener.
You will also learn how to correctly format the all-important front and back matter of your books in Scrivener, how to create children’s illustrated books in the Kindle Kids Book Creator and how to format elegantly styled eBooks within Vellum.
Finally, you will learn how to validate both ePub and Kindle formatted books and check that they render correctly on a number of different devices.

My name is David James Ault and I am a British ex-pat living in Slovakia, in the heart of Europe, with my wonderful Slovak wife, our three children and our English Bullterrier, Shaggy.
Having graduated with a BSc (Hons) Degree in European Business, the first part of my career was spent in marketing, especially in the tourism industry, and during that time, I completed my Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing, at the CIM.
In 2001, I moved from the UK to Slovakia, where I set up a tourism portal about Slovakia and wrote travel related articles and books. I also began writing my first novel.
At that time I taught English as a Foreign Language, as well as Business English Mentoring, and then in 2005 I started working as a Freelance Translator, before finally setting up my own translation company.
During the last 15 years, I have written a number of non-fiction books in a variety of niches and set up a number of successful websites to promote my various interests. More recently, I have also been writing fiction and non-fiction books for teenagers and young adults. I am currently creating a series of online courses to impart some of the knowledge I have learned over the last two decades to my students.
