How to Make an eBook with Sigil - Free

For those who don't want to get into the nitty-gritty of eBook formatting (I don't blame ya), you can take the easy way out and build an eBook with a free program called Sigil, that turns regular text and images into the EPUB format. Based on a 3-part series I guest posted for Piotr over at Password Incorrect, I decided to put it into eBook format for those who would prefer the content in file format. Below is the blurb for How to Make an eBook with Sigil:
Creating a perfect eBook from a manuscript requires technical knowledge that many authors in the self-publishing community either do not have or do not have time to learn. By using the free program Sigil, you can quickly and easily convert your manuscript into an EPUB eBook that is ready to be uploaded to many of the eBook stores. Also, you can easily convert the eBook made in Sigil into a format that is ready to upload to Kindle.

How to Make an eBook with Sigil is a 2,000-word guide for self-publishers that teaches you to quickly format your manuscript into an eBook.

Neat. I downloaded Sigil but then forgot about it.

Not sure if I'm an "authority" on anything, because I can't even take care of myself. But thanks for the compliment.
