Before you begin (Read me first!)

Article Tools

Thank you for purchasing the ePub Template for Word. I highly recommend you spend a few minutes going through this support site to get the most out of the template. It will save you a lot of time and frustration later!

When you purchased the template, you should have been redirected to a registration page to create a unique login to access all the tutorials. We are constantly adding more, so I would encourage you to check the site frequently. There’s a search bar at the top of this site where you can search for specific solutions, and if there’s no tutorial available for what you need, either refer back to the users guide or let us know and we’ll create a tutorial to specifically address your question.

After you’ve created your login, you can revisit the tutorials anytime by visiting:

http://support.epubtemplate.com

(You will see all the video tutorials accessible through the menu on the left side at the above webpage)

One option to get a start in working with the template  is to watch this recording of a live workshop I did – although it’s about an hour long, I walk through the template in detail and show it in use – it’s a true ‘hands on’ demo on how to utilize the template.

There’s also one very important precaution in using the template file that has tripped a few people up:

You cannot use a 1. , 2., 3. etc.. in your chapter titles or subtitles! This will break the conversion when you try to upload it to Amazon.

I talk more about this issue and alternatives here.

    Hi Brian
    This is the best purchase I have made for a very long time. My original book on Kindle would not work properly on the “go to”, plus the formatting was pretty naff.
    Over this weekend, I have learnt how to produce a decent, no, an excellent formatted book, where everything works correctly and there is not any multiple returns to give me spaces where needed .In 48 hours, I learnt to use MS Word correctly,(And i have been using it for 20 years, and it is thanks to the young lady’s pleasant voice, and the videos.
    Last night, I uploaded it to Kindle and received an instant download to review, which looks and works as it should.
    Because I have fairly long chapter titles, I am going to experiment with reducing the font size.
    I also added another type of paragraph, where it gave me no indent with a 30 point space before, so I could have a break in a chapter where needed.
    One thing I did not realise, that with a template, the base dictionary was US, and I needed UK, so that had to be changed.
    Thank you for a brilliant product.
    Best Regards

    Hi Brian
    With a very very very modest success in publishing my books on Kindle and Smashwords. For my next one, I am thinking of using ‘Wattpad’ or ‘Amazon Writeon’ initially to see how they are received.
    So my question is, will they accept the Kindle upload from your template, or do I have to use another format.

    Thanks & Regards
