Epub (electronic publication) is a standard file type. Epub files are preferred because they're optimized for any reading device (reflowable).
Calibre is open source (free) software and the one-stop solution for your Epub needs. Calibre enables you to convert documents to many file types and edit them. You can also edit metadata: the ebook title, author, cover image, series info, publisher, tags and more. Calibre makes it easy and this course shows you how.
Converting file types is amazingly simple. You'll love what this program can do.
The course is taught by Jason Matthews, bestselling author and self-publishing expert. In less than 1 hour you'll be creating Epub files that are ready to upload to major retailers.

With Calibre, you can convert file types, edit metadata, add cover images, edit within your book and so much more.

Epub stands for electronic publication, and it's become a standard file type that can be uploaded to major ebook retailers like Amazon, Google, Apple, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords and many more. Epub files are preferred because they're optimized for any device (reflowable).
It's best to format ebooks as well as possible before uploading to Calibre including metadata, although all sorts of editing is possible after uploading.
Fortunately Epub Validator gives a detailed list of any errors including their locations in Calibre. Then you can go back to editing mode or even to your original document, make the required changes and try validating again until the file passes inspection. Congratulations!
It's smart to have two versions of your Epub ebook, one with a cover inserted as the first page and one without. The reason is because some retailers add the cover image separately while others do not.
Calibre makes it simple to create two versions for this purpose.
