How to Create Standard, Text-Heavy E-books
If you’re on track to creating a text-heavy e-book, you’ll need to know the basic programs, options, and helpful tools available to you.
Basic styles and formats
The two major formats for simple, text-heavy e-books are EPUB and Amazon’s MOBI (for Kindle). In your book-creation tool of choice, (Microsoft Word, InDesign, PressBooks…) make sure to use styles and formats. Most people prefer to buy pre-formatted templates that have these styles built in. You can also create your own template using the options, but you’ll want to keep it consistent throughout your book.
