Making an ebook

I am a new member and have written and published several book that I want make available as ebooks, to be read on iPhone, iPad, Kindle etc.
I would like some simple advise on how to go about it. I have Indesign on my iMac and I books are in Word and PDF formate at the moment.

Any offers of help ?

Writer2EPUB will convert a Word file to EPUB
Calibre will make an attempt at converting PDF (a terrible format to convert FROM)

EPUB Reader is only (a great one) a viewing plugin for Firefox

Microsoft Word can export to HTML. Then you can use Sigil, convert it to an ePub (for the iDevices) and then convert the ePub to Mobi/PRC (for the Kidneys). Also, pretty much all devices can read PDF. Save them as tagged PDFs and they can also reflow (don't know about the font/font size, though).
