Review: From beginner to pro, anyone can pick up a formatting tip from Cheri Lasota’s Design and Upload Your ePub: The Steps to Your Success.

In a clear and well-formatted design, Cheri Lasota takes the reader through the steps and tricks of creating an ebook as well as self-publishing it on the major vendor sites. Having formatted ebooks for a while, I learned some new tricks to make better quality formatted ebooks, including the use of styles in Word as well as software called Jutoh for compiling an ePub. Lasota even goes through some of the complicated steps of using Adobe’s InDesign program to create an ePub.

I highly recommend Design and Upload Your ePub by Cheri Lasota to anyone starting formatting or wishing to take their formatting to another level.
