Your bestseller on a Nook?


I read a post on an agent blog the other day that gave a good step-by-step tutorial on how to put your novel on an e-reader. From what I understand, a lot of agents these days read submissions this way.

I have a Nook, and the other day, I made a PDF of my book and transferred it over. (It wouldn't take the Word doc.)

Trouble is, there are weird line breaks and it doesn't make for the easiest reading. Anyone know how to fix this? I think there is a way of formatting your manuscript before making a PDF that will work.

Anyone recall reading a post about this subject?

I haven't used the ereader much but for Kristen's latest book. If I come across any tips, I'll keep you posted.

Best,
Suma.

Hmmm, I haven't heard of this. But, sounds interesting. I'd love to know more about it myself.

Hi Ron! You've had a makeover, huh? I like it. :) I don't know a ton about the Nook nor about this submission process. But, take at look at this article which deals with submissions and people pay to read. I have no idea about it but it sounds interesting. :)

Thanks for stopping by, everyone.

Mina, I will check out that Huff Post link.

(To clarify, I don't want to e-publish my books. I was looking for a way to format it so an agent can upload it to their e-reader.)
