This is a simple guide on how not to write and publish a Shakespir type of eBook.
How Not to Write an eBook
At Kindle it’s very quick and easy to learn how to type something up and then publish it via the Amazon Kindle system set up. Not so at Shakespir. At Shakespir the guide on how-to publish is something like 97 pages. Whereas the Kindle perspective from my point of view is much simple.
The first thing at Kindle is type it up in whatever program you want.
Next copy the text into Notepad.
Copy all the text from Notepad.
Copy the text into Sigil.
Format the text in Sigil.
Save the Sigil file.
View the Sigil file in Calibre.
Convert the Sigil file into MOBI format using Calibre.
Open your Kindle account.
Click on the upload a new book section.
Fill out the information about the book.
Upload the book cover.
Upload the MOBI file.
Complete the steps for the book at kindle like choosing the price etc.
You are now done.
All you have to do is to wait until Kindle reviews the book.
An email will be sent stating the book is now available on Kindle.
Writing an eBook can take time. Creating the format for Kindle is pretty much a snap. Creating an eBook for Shakespir is pretty much a nightmare.
The site is extremely slow. It takes longer to open a page at Shakespir than it does to publish a book on Kindle. There is no way to effectively search for books for sale at Shakespir that’s worthwhile. It’s best to just use Google to find a book at Shakespir.
The super weird thing about Shakespir is uploading an incomplete book to test the system is not allowed. So I’ve written the shortest crappiest so called eBook that is available online. That way I can see if I have any clues on how to actually manage the various insane complexities of Shakespir.
This is a test version number 2 of the eBook on how not to write an eBook. This is a self publishing test to see if I can ever figure this out.
