To be able to publish on Okadabooks, your document must change from PDF or Word or TXT or RTF to Epub.

Epub is the accepted document format. If you upload any other format, you'll get all kinds of error messages.


Now What is Epub?

Epub for short simply means Electronic Publication. This type of document ends with .epub extension, as against .doc, .docx, .rtf, .txt or .pdf extensions.

E.g
Nonso and the Fat Hen.epub is an epub file.

But

Nonso and the Fat Hen.pdf is strictly a PDF file. Same goes with the other formats.

So you have to ensure your document has a .epub extension before uploading it.

Epub is the format used by almost all online digital publishing platforms. Amazon, Kobo books, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, amongst others.

Although the last two like their epub documents to be wired specifically to certain styles, so as to ensure it comes out well and people can read it without complains on their devices.

With Okadabooks, you have two options to convert your document(s) to epub.

Convert it on other eBook conversion platforms or app.
Since 2013, I've been using online epub converters for my works and among them, I choose to remain with two:

a. https://convertio.co1
b. https://cloudconvert.com

These platforms make your epub come out very well.

Make use of the Okadabooks epub creator. Read this article I wrote about it here.
Now let's go back to number 1. Before going to okadabooks.com to upload your work, visit any of the above platforms.

For this tutorial, we will use https://convertio.co1

First thing to do is visit the link. This is how it comes out in a tab or phone. Please tap on the images for a clearer view.

Please read the full post here so you can follow the instructions with pictures. I am unable to do it here, as blog style posting is limited.
