Hello from a newbie, and would-be self-publisher

Hi, Everyone,

I'm just a Boston-based newbie saying hello.

I'm also a self-publisher. So far, I'm just doing pdfs but I'd love to do kindle and epub/ibookstore. I'm hoping that I can learn here how to to produce mobi and epub books and post them to places like the kindle bookstore and lulu.

Anyone have any experience doing that? so far, I'm having a devil of a time trying to produce an epub file (I'm using Calibre) that lulu will accept.

cheers
mjt
