  1. Hi, I just purchased your book “eBook Formatting & Publishing Guide 4.0. So far I’m impressed. I’m trying to help two conventional authors convert a 500 page print non-fiction book (with > 800 footnotes) into Kindle, and I would like to convince them to publish ePub as well. I’ve already purchased 4 books on how to publish for Kindle all with contradicting advice. So far, yours seems the most helpful.

    However, I noticed you don’t seem to publish it in ePub format which is my preferred format. I converted it with Calibre and it seems OK (not perfect mind you), I just thought it was odd I couldn’t find it at Barnes and Noble or Kobobooks. (I have a Kobo Aura HD reader). I also noticed that you didn’t format the book to show images on older devices — at least they don’t show up on any of the eInk devices in Kindle previewer. They show up fine in the Aura HD.

    Anyways, so far I am pleased.
