How to Format Your eBook (.EPUB) and Upload to Kindle


Grab my FREE guide, How To Write Your Book In 3 Months, at

In this highly anticipated video, I provide a tutorial to format your ebook in .epub format, and also show you what it looks like when you upload to Kindle. Please be aware that your manuscript needs to be pre-formatted BEFORE converting to .epub in Calibre. This is why I recommend downloading a free book formatting template from AND THEN uploading to Calibre. It’s a two-step process!

  1. Also, this website is extremely cool (converts epub to movi)
    Thanks to it, now I can read literally every single book from the Flibusta library (where every single book is for free, but it’s in russian 😀 )

  2. Watched the video, but i am little confused. The word document of the manuscript is already formatted for Kindle or Calibri does iT?

  3. Hi Kristen, right now I have difficulty uploading my manuscript for ebook version. When I look at the previewer, it's a mess, off-set paragraphs, out of place math equations, diagrams are collapsed. It's a math book with lots of spherical diagrams and contains a lot of math equations texts. Is page numbering not used in ebook formatting, also about "page break" is used instead of "pressing ENTER"? Thanks and GOD Bless!

  5. If I were you I'd slow yourself down …people watching for the first time find it annoying when the video moved faster than they can follow.

  6. This was great, thanks, I've been looking for "where can i publish ebooks for free?" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of – Ronaflee Singular Remedy – (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now )?

    It is a smashing one off product for discovering how to create ebooks easily minus the normal expense. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my mate got great results with it.

  7. Definitely my procrastination has been an issue and I've been wanting to publish a book for a few years now. I need to do it, so someone like you to help me and sort of re-spark that would be wonderful.

  8. Book Formatting. New Blank Page. When showing how to format a book, why can no one start with a single blank page? Show us how to set up a page by coping and pasting from an existing text to a new blank page, properly formatting the book as you go. Why Does no one do this?

  9. This video tutorial is the real deal. Thanks so much for the efforts made to achieve this. Some things are becoming clearer now. God bless you real good.

  10. I wish it were that simple. I uploaded a fully formatted manuscript .docx to this same platform and the formatting when it converted was all messed up. The drop caps disappeared, the font changes and im using a very standard font (times New Roman). Can you think of any reason why this might be

  11. Thank you so much for this tutorial! I was wondering where I can find what measurements the cover should be for ebooks and physical copies?

  12. Just stumbled across this, and it was very helpful. I want to clarify something. So by using Calibre that makes all the formatting consistent? Do you still have to manually insert page breaks, headings, etc in Word if you use that software?

  13. I am getting an error with my cover. I'm trying to prepare an EPUB for Amazon. It says it's not connected to the spine. I can't find any help on this. Does anyone know how to fix? I am on a Mac.
