Want to publish a Kindle book?

One of these days I’ll publish a Kindle book (or some sort of e-book). For now, I’ve got a column with tips on how to do this. It’s not all that hard, really. A lot of the challenge, it turns out, is in formatting the book properly for the Kindle (or for any other e-book format). There are tools available to do this now, but they’re still evolving, and not quite as easy to use as I’d like. One of the best, though, is the template available from Apple for publishing at the iBookstore (for viewing the iPhone and iPad). You will need Apple’s Pages program to use that template. In any case, I’m hoping the tools will just keep getting better to make it easier to publish e-books.
