You might be that young and visionary writer, with a goal of making your digital book. Well, making a digital book requires the following of a few procedures, and you will be done. Flow with me in the next few paragraph as we set a foundation that will assist you to make your digital book.
1. Understand different digital book formats
Digital books are written in different formats. The formats are readable on different devices; an example of digital book formats is ePub. Understanding the formats of digital books helps a writer make content that is accessible by a variety of readers.
2. Write and design your digital book in the simplest formats(especially Word format)
This is a very important stage of making your digital book. Designing and writing your book in the simplest format such as Word format will make it easily convertible into different formats; it will also ensure that the book undergoes minimal distortions.
While designing and writing your book, the following steps can be followed;
I. Make a title page for your digital book
Type the details and the information that should always be found on the title page. Such information includes; digital book name, author, and subtitles. This information should be formatted using a style that suits them best. Where you wish to emphasise certain details, for example, the name of your digital book; use italics, underlines, or even bold letters and different colours depending on your creativity.
II. Make a table of contents
This should be done on a new page; the page should be entitled- “table of contents.” You will have to select a format for your table of contents and then type in the different headings you will have the digital book. A demonstration of how this can be done using word is;
- Choose the reference option
- Chose the option ‘table of contents.”
- Insert the table of contents in the new page
- Type your table of contents.
III. Make your digital book’s chapters
This is started on a new page. It entails typing the heading of your chapter and formatting it using an appropriate style. If you are using the word to make chapters for your book, heading style one is the best for your headings. Heading style 2, on the other hand, is the best for your subheadings. It is obvious that each chapter heading will have its content.
IV. Make the header and footers for the pages
To make your book more attractive and professional, insert headers and footers to each page. The header can be the name assigned to the book; the footer, on the other hand, can be the page number. There are no standard criteria for what to write as headers and footers; it is based on your creativity.
V. Make the other chapters
This is done using the above setup.
VI. Save your design as a reusable template
Since it might not be your last time to write a digital book with the same layout; save the book’s design as a reusable template. You will simply retrieve the layout the next time you want to write another book.
VII. Convert into other formats
This is the last step of making your digital book. You can convert your digital book into other formats depending on the formats mostly used by your readers.
