‍How to format an eBook

We’ll be honest, we’re not experts when it comes to the design side of eBooks – but we do have design friends that can help. If you asked us what makes a compelling eBook from a content formatting perspective, though, we’d say: 

  • Include a table of contents so your readers know what to expect and what each section covers
  • Break up the text with headings and subheadings so it can easily be skip read 
  • Use bullet points and lists to present information clearly and concisely
  • Pick a nice font, and have generous spacing and margins – legibility is key
  • Keep sections, paragraphs, and sentence short and sweet
  • Add visuals to make the text more engaging
  • Test the finished product on multiple devices – it should be just as legible on a phone as a laptop or desktop
