Thread Using Elevate Web Builder 2nd book now on kindle, or lower price on paperback

My EWB book is now available on kindle or paperback or both on Amazon.

I tried several conversion techniques until I found one that looked like a decent eBook.

Also, there is a discount version of my paperback book available UNTIL MARCH 2017  at
https://www.createspace.com/6456720
with discount code of: 9EU5YVG4
It should be available there for $49.

I have no experience with the createspace store, but they claim to offer the discount.  The fulfillment
is still done by Amazon, so I don't know why they are cheaper.  

In March I will see if people are happy with the CreateSpace option and maybe continue with it.  It makes no difference to me!!!

Absolutely.  I'm working on it this week.  

EWB book was written with Word, and the technology to make an Ebook with Word is pretty clear.

The 2nd edition of mORMot book was written in Latex, which made for a prettier printed book, but my first few attempts at converting it to an Ebook were not good.  Either they looked too much like a PDF and small text, or they looked like a TXT file with end-of-lines at strange spots.

I found a package which claims to do a better job, I'm just trying to figure it out.  It shouldn't take me more than a week or two.

I found out how to do it to get a solution.  I'm not an expert in epub, but I found tex2epub does a pretty good job.  I read it today on my kindle and it looks fine except for about one table where you have to zoom out.  I might be able to fine tune it, but it's totally readable.

I'm making the ebook free to anyone who buys the physical book, or you can just buy the Ebook.  I put up the source code referenced by chapter number today at http://erickengelke.com/ewbmormot.zip

Oh, Amazon still has to okay it, it might take a day or so.

New to the process, still learning.

Checking in.... two questions:

1 - Is the Mormot book available on Kindle now?

2 - A purchase of the book via CreateSpace includes the Kindle version?

I honestly don't know how they work.  I don't know if anyone but me has been able to purchase via CreateSpace as I haven't seen any royalties from them.

If you buy the book EMail me and I'll make sure you get the kindle version that day.
