Error Free Submissions | The EPub Validator

Thursday is our Tech Tools for #Authors Segment Our goal is to bring you an array of cool tools that are becoming available for authors. This is one of many we will be sharing with you. This is a free tool. This is a post we wanted to share from Joel Friedlander of www.thebookdesigner.com IDPF ePub Validator – Checks your ePub for errors and reports Where to find it: http://validator.idpf.org/ Learning Curve: Walk in the park The International Digital Publishing Forum sets the standards for the ePub file specifications. Some major eBook/ePub vendors require that a submission to their service be 100% error free, and conform to the industry standards for ePub validation. (Notable examples are Ingram Spark and Smashwords, where others like Amazon KDP are much more forgiving.) In effect, the files must not contain anything that is out of spec for the format, or improperly coded for these publishers to accept the files. Though ePub conversion from most applications is flawless, sometimes things don’t encode just right. A font may be embedded that shouldn’t be, a special character might be in the manuscript, or you might have an image that is set to word-wrap that just isn’t working. No matter the issue, the ePub validator website will take your file, scan it, and give you a fairly detailed, if not technical, overview of what went wrong. This will allow you to fix the issue in your source interior file, be it Word or InDesign, or use another tool like Calibre or Sigil. It is as easy to use as simply uploading the file and pressing validate, and you will... read more

Are You Missing From Your Life?

We showcase Best Selling Author Ellie Savoy today for one very important reason. Are YOU taking care of YOU? On the road to authorship and growing your business there is hustle of so many pieces of marketing that takes place that we often neglect our own health and wellness.  This is our Friday gift to you:  Remember to take care of YOU!  Following is a guest post presented by Ellie Savoy. I know this might sound strange but have you ever considered that you might be missing from your life? You are nowhere to be found on a mental, physical, emotional or spiritual list of priorities. When I ask this question to a group of people or an individual, the answer is always a resounding “yes”. The question is something that people don’t seem to have ever considered. Have you ever had a conversation with yourself about this? Does it feel impossible, maybe even a myth to make yourself a priority? Yet if you don’t, who will, and what will happen if you don’t? I started my journey of making myself a priority back in 2011 and haven’t looked back since. I never realized that a uterine fibroid diagnosis was going to change my life so much in a positive way when I made the decision to do something about it naturally. (Purchase her book today!) When my gynecologist told me that I had two uterine fibroids, one the size of an orange, I was really upset. On the drive home, I had to pull off on the side of the road because I was crying. It wasn’t a... read more

Author Showcase: Andy Falco-Jimenez –

Andy Falco-Jimenez, Best Selling Author, Speaker and Dog Trainer,  was our recent guest for our "Fast Start to Your Book" 12 Week Group Training Class.  Andy has accomplished much by using the tool of becoming a best selling author and proper marketing techniques.  We chose Andy for our interview to help our students get a feel for the diversity of personalities, walks of life and niches #authors come from. He has coauthored a book with his eight year old son, and together they have been interviewed for T.V. and radio spots.  What an incredible confidence building experience for his son, Kelly. We say Andy is a shining example of what smart marketing and heart can do to change your life. This is a book written for both children and adults. There is a wonderful story written just for children and interesting facts and information for the adults. In the children's story, learn how a puppy has a dream to be a police dog and how he follows the advice of his mom and dad. Then suddenly he gets a chance to prove that he can be Police Dog just like his father and grandfather. These facts will give you (the adult) the tools to answer the questions we are sure your child will have. It will be fun to learn about how fantastic Police Dogs are and do it together with your child. Police Dogs are so fantastic and we hope you will enjoying learning how they use their nose, speed and smarts to help all of us everyday. In addition to being a Police K9 handler, Andy has... read more
