I finished uploading The Greedy Babyman and other Fun Japanese Tales. This upload is my Smashwords version, which sends it to a number of different ebook sellers. This week, I'll publish it to the Amazon Kindle.
It was a good first try. I downloaded an html file of it that worked well. Then I downloaded a .mobi version that worked well on the Kindle. The illustrations look very nice.
I'll have to wait to try others because my OS is too old to get the software I need to try it out on other venues. Hmm. Although there might be a way.
There may be a bit of tweaking I'll need to do later, but so far so good. I read and reread instructions for formatting, and I pretty much got it right. When creating an ebook, you can't use spaces or tabs for indents, and page breaks don't always work well. Making a table of contents wasn't nearly as difficult as it appeared at first. From what I read, inserting pictures can be a nightmare, but the ten watercolors I added and the glyphs all worked perfectly.
