Use Calibre to Create EPUB & MOBI Versions of Your Book
Though I love print books I’m so often on the road that it’s more efficient to use my Kindle Paperwhite as a personal portable library for work and for pleasure. Authors send me advanced reader copies (ARCs) for blurbs or review and books for possible publication with Misadventures Media. I wish they’d send me a MOBI file but, though it’s easy enough to do, they don’t even know where to start. So I ask for a Word doc and create it myself in about 15 minutes. Sometimes I put it off, though, and forget. So, no blurb. Sorry!
Please don’t put your potential reviewers in that position. It’s actually pretty easy to make your own EPUB and MOBI files using the free Calibre eBook conversion and management tool.
