Is there anyone I can speak to live about ePub?

Hi fellow authors and writers,

I am grateful to the information given here by other members but I have a few issues (small) to finish our first ePub book

is there anyone I can speak to live who has already created an ePub book
that might be able to guide me

my issues left are
1) how to get our cover graphic to appear as the title page
2) table of contents
3) overall way the pages should flow with pictures - where to put
in page breaks

if you have time and can help - help to list you as a resource
in the new book

please I would love to have our ePub version out this week
I would be very grateful -

if you can -

my direct email is joshuashapiro@worldmysteryrc.org

after this I hope to be able to write a step by step how
anyone can create their e-book as ePub - I am good at this
type of writing

thank you - thank you SOS - Joshua

It's easy. If you know HTML you know ePub.

Mess around with Sigil and study the source code.

Mostly forget flow around pictures if you are targeting mass market.
How much room is there for text on a PHONE

If you have a Clean Word file. Toss it thru Writer2EPUB (open office plugin) and see what you get.
Test view your results on a number of different devices (not all using the SAME EPUB software). IMHO relying on PC emulators is only a starting point.

Clean Word file?

There is no such thing.

Hey, It is all Relative.

I was intending that the document was otherwise ready for prime time.

the answer depends on the way you prepared your files so far.

If you use a desktop app like InDesign or Word, you will need certain kind of help.
If you did the html, you may require a different kind of help.

If you are doing HTML, you could get a lot of help by reading Elizabeth Castro's book on epub. (Google "Pigs, Gourds and Wikis")..
