By on

Tuesday, March 10

Due Today

  • Reading. Read Chapters 8–13 in APE. Focus in particular on Chapter 13, "How to Convert Your File."
  • Blogging. Why do Kawasaki and Welch describe Chapter 13 as the "harriest chapter in the book"? What's hard about preparing a book for distribution to a wider audience along all the channels they describe in Chapter 12? How does or should "dissemination" of content influence the composition of a book in the first place? What would you tell aspiring authors or self-publishers about the process? You can answer any or all of these questions. As always, include two more more images (screenshots of your own workspace while producing an ebook might work well!) and two external links to the work or writing of others. TAGS: blog7, publishing, and any others that may be relevant.
  • Complete these "Steps for Preparing an InDesign File for eBook Production."

In-Class Activities

  • Work on processing ebooks for the Individual Book Project (follow-along demonstration).

Activities to Complete by Thursday, March 12

  • Complete the export process on your book (Individual Book Project) and be prepared to iron out any issues during class. The goal is to have your ePub version done by the end of class on Thursday.
