My novel is finished. I completed it a few days ago. Then I thought about how to convert to ebook. I heard different writers talk about how much time they spent getting it just right. I looked at a fourteen lesson tutorial on Guido Henkel's blog. It was very good as far as I got. Then something else on his site got my attention. He would prepare my manuscript so that it would be ready to download to the various sites. His price was $100 to prepare two files, one for mobi and one for epub. For another $50 he would prepare a file for upload to smashwords. Not knowing how long it would actually take me and possibly getting it right, I decided to turn it over to Guido. In two days I had all the files I needed for direct upload. He did have me redo my cover, because it didn't have a high enough resolution. I couldn't be happier. I downloaded to amazon, B&N, and smashwords. I am still waiting for my nook book to be processed. It is already on amazon and smashwords for sale. I highly recommend Guido to anyone that would like to bypass what I perceived to be the headache part of the process. Now all I have to do is try to sell some books.
