You will also learn how to correctly format the all-important front and back matter of your books in Scrivener, how to create children’s illustrated books in the Kindle Kids Book Creator and how to format elegantly styled eBooks within Vellum.

Finally, you will learn how to validate both ePub and Kindle formatted books and check that they render correctly on a number of different devices.
