It’s easy to search Google on how to make an eBook, for example, I got this result from bookbaby.com.

Content, aesthetics and technology

First of all, daily write is a good idea for eBook writing. Secondly, eBook should make sure that it “is formatted, converted, and ready for worldwide distribution”. “The most popular ebook file formats–the ones that most devices can read–include plain text, Adobe PDF, ePub, and HTML”.”Most eBooks are standard ePUB format. This format is ideal for text-based books and books with small images embedded amongst the text (which essentially creates paragraph breaks).” “When it comes to books that rely heavily on design elements or large illustrations/photos (cookbooks, children’s books, comics, etc.), fixed layout may be the better solution if you want to preserve the qualities of the printed page. ” Add ebook cover, insert page breaks, adjust font and font size, format images, create tablesadd page headers and footers are all the eBook maker should pay attention to the content and aesthetics. In addition, eBook should have an ISBN to “identify it amongst all the others in the digital marketplace”.
