Whether you are planning to write a book or have already your tale committed to paper, submitting your story on a number of ebook stores is easier than you may think.

Before you upload your ebook you need to get the story in order. Formatting the book is simple. All you need to do is make sure all the text is in one font and the size is consistent throughout in the word document. You then walk through the steps of uploading the book detailed on the publishers website.
