As well as getting your actual manuscript in good nick for publication and also finding/designing that perfect cover, one thing I hadn’t considered was how that nicely formatted word document needed to be modified to ensure it was fit for submission to Amazon (kindle) and other formats, via Smashwords.
Thankfully, both sites have their own eBooks that serve has handy guides to getting your manuscript in a fit state for submission on an “E” format.
For kindle, go for this book.
For Smashwords (so basically all other formats), use this.
Hope this is of use to someone. For me, I found out that I now have to remove all my tab indented paragraphs and replace them with first line indents. Doh-ville!
