The Making of Books: An eBook Template

My son, beware of anything beyond these. Of making many books there is no end, and much study is a weariness of the flesh. — Ecclesiastes 12:12

Indeed the making of books is endless, even more so now in the age eBooks. That would leave one with much to be wary of indeed, but not in this instance!

My first eBook, Anime Aftershocks, is a compilation of blog posts. So it was only natural, to me at least, to write the eBook using an HTML editor. Dreamweaver isn’t exactly a great word processor, but it got the job done. For later work, I figured I’d use Microsoft Word or That would be easier, or so I thought. I soon discovered that I would be faced with potential conversion issues and would likely have to convert the book to HTML before processing anyway.

With that in mind, I decided to stick with Dreamweaver and developed a template that has become the starting point for new eBooks which I’m sharing here. It is largely based on what I learned using Calibre, and Amalthia’s Ebook Formatting Tutorial. The Preface file contains some brief instructional commentary. Feel free to use this any way you like, and have fun making books!
