I am nothing if not cooperative
So here, for your viewing pleasure, is a video I made of how to set up Scrivener to make your .mobi files (and the ePub is just about the same). Smashwords files must be created outside of Scrivener, but I’ll post a video on that soon, too. (The Smashwords guide is great, but sometimes just seeing the visual helps).
And, of course, I should point out that the sample I’m using for the video is the raw Scrivener file for Dead Friends and Other Dating Dilemmas, which is brand spanking new on Kindle and the Nook and Smashwords. Only 99 cents, folks. Hope you check it out!

I hope the video is helpful! I did the cover for Dead Friends on the fly, and will be posting soon about how I did that. I’m learning as I go and happy to blog about the process. If you have questions or topics related to eBook publishing, formatting and/or marketing, drop me a comment and I’ll see if I can address it!
