Some of my email subscribers have asked me how they can turn their existing stories into boxed sets.
While I imagined one way to do it, I never knew about the second way, which I just found on “The Book Designer”.
A blog post over there said:
There are basically two ways to create a compilation ebook:
- Combining the source files
- Combining the ebook files
To me that's interesting, because I wrote three out of four novellas in a series on my Mac.
And my Mac died.
I had backed up all my documents to two hard drives. But alas, nothing could be retrieved from them. Both blank.
So I no longer had those manuscripts.
But Amazon has them, of course
Armed with my new knowledge about how to combine ebook files, I logged into KDP, clicked on one of the books and chose “Editing Content”.
From there, I went to “Kindle eBook Preview”, and downloaded the .mobi file.
With the free program Calibre, I can open the file, change the file into another type, and then work on them.
I hope this helps you, too.
