eBook Formatting and a Sexy Guy

If you haven’t already downloaded Calibre, do it. It’s a free ebook organizing program and more. It also searchs the ‘net for books you want so you can find the cheapest price. And it converts books from one format to another.

When I decided to make Lavender Rose available for a free download, I converted it from a Word docx to a PDF. I’ve converted lots of Word docs to PDFs with no problem and have several on my Kindle that look great. 

Lavender Rose did not work and I’m trying to figure out why. In the meantime, I converted the PDF to mobi format using Calibre. This program converts to ten different formats. I chose mobi because I own a Kindle. The conversion was much better than the original Word-to-PDF, but it’s still not perfect, and for my stories, I really want perfect. I’ll have to do further research.

I don’t have to worry about conversion when I publish through Smashwords or Amazon because they handle that for me for free. But I want to learn how to do it myself because, well, I’m a control freak. Just ask AJ. ;/

Here’s someone gorgeous to drool over:
