About This Class

In eBook Formatting Mastery, you will learn how to format professional looking eBooks, in both Kindle and ePub formats, using both free and premium software which will provide your readers with an enjoyable reading experience.


Nothing cries out amateur more for a self-published author than a badly formatted book.

At its worst, bad formatting can stop the reader from finishing your ebook and may even result in bad reviews.

Even ebooks with minor formatting mistakes can result in the reader being distracted from the world that you have lovingly created and jolt them back into reality, thus spoiling their reading experience.

In this course, you will learn how to give your readers the best reading experience possible by compiling professional looking eBooks within the writing tool, Scrivener.

You will also learn how to correctly format the all-important front and back matter of your books in Scrivener, how to create children’s illustrated books in the Kindle Kids Book Creator and how to format elegantly styled eBooks within Vellum.

Finally, you will learn how to validate both ePub and Kindle formatted books and check that they render correctly on a number of different devices.

Save time, money and countless hassle formatting your ePub and Kindle eBooks

Tired of spending all that time and effort manually formatting your eBooks?

Would you like to know how I easily and effortlessly format my books into different formats for publishing on the various online eBook distributors?

You will get an over-the-shoulder, step-by-step guide to Scrivener’s powerful Compile feature, where you will learn how to correctly use the different compilation options available and create correctly formatted books in both the ePub and Mobi formats.

By the end of the course, you will be able to confidently format your ebooks so that they render correctly on different devices and ensure that your readers enjoy the perfect reading experience.

Currently, on the How To Publish An eBook website, I am giving away a FREE online course for anyone who is interested in making a living (or at least a part-time income) from self-publishing.

I also teach classes about course creation, online learning platforms and teaching, and recently, I launched the Writer Teacher Facebook Group as a place where self-published authors and online teachers can hang out to discuss how to make a significant income from your writing through the repurposing of content that you have already written in the form of online courses.

A Little Bit More About Me

My name is David James Ault and I am a British ex-pat living in Slovakia, in the heart of Europe, with my wonderful Slovak wife, our three children and our English Bullterrier, Shaggy.

Having graduated with a BSc (Hons) Degree in European Business, the first part of my career was spent in marketing, especially in the tourism industry, and during that time, I completed my Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing, at the CIM.

In 2001, I moved from the UK to Slovakia, where I set up a tourism portal about Slovakia and wrote travel related articles and books. I also began writing my first novel.

During the last 15 years, I have written non-fiction books in a variety of niches and set up a number of successful websites to promote my various interests. More recently, I have also been writing fiction and non-fiction books for teenagers and young adults and, in 2015, I set myself the goal of becoming a full-time Writer Teacher within the next couple of years.

I have an eclectic range of interests, including languages, writing, history, online marketing, design and travel. I also have a passion for cooking and eating healthy food, as well as the traditional Slovak dishes I have discovered, whilst living in the heart of Europe.

I have created a number of online courses for many of my niches and I have set up both the How To Publish An eBook and the Teach Someone A Lesson websites to impart some of the knowledge I have learned over the years to my students.
