View Full Version : ePub on Kindle self-publishing

02-16-2011, 01:41 PM
Has anyone else had trouble uploading their ePub formatted e-books to Kindle's platform?

I created the ePub out of a bunch of RTF files in a program called Atlantis. They upload just fine on the Nook's Pubit, but Amazon not so much.

I e-mailed them and they actually wrote back saying that the way I did it is creating numerous HTML files in one or something. I really wish I could figure out how to resolve this.

If you could give a bit more detail about what sort of problem(s) you're encountering, someone might be able to advise. At the moment, you haven't given us a lot to go on! :)

One suggestion though - have you tried using the Kindlegen ( application to convert your EPUB and then checking the resulting MOBI file with the Kindle Previewer application? If that comes out OK, you could then upload the MOBI file directly.

I use Atlantis too, it creates very neat epubs. What you can do is convert the Atlantis epub into mobi with Calibre. Then test it in Kindle Previewer. I did so, and a book with +100 images works well in Kindle and the Kindle app for iPod Touch. Haven't uploaded to Amazon yet, but I know some others did this and Amazon accepted the mobi file. Hope this helps :).
