我可以使用Google文檔為Kindle編寫電子書嗎?



我正在編寫我的第一本電子書。寫作幾乎完成 - 我將在星期二完成。

目前我正在撰寫Google文檔,並計劃在Kindle上發布。這些兼容嗎?如果不是,我應該如何處理已有的文件?

生成Kindle .mobi文件有很多種方法。一種方法是創建一個MS Word文件並將其轉換為.mobi文件(使用Calibre或Amazon自己的建議)。

從MS Word制作kindle文件並不容易。如果您從Google文檔開始,則必須將其導出到MS Word(不要導出為PDF)。

Calibre is pretty powerful; it can convert your MS Word file fairly well. If you don't have MS Word, you can export from Google Docs to Open Office (Libre Office) file format .odt. Choose File --> Download as --> ODT But my experience is that ODT to .mobi doesn't work that easily.

但希望花一些時間測試和預覽您的Kindle文件。學習如何將其轉換為mobi格式(或epub格式)需要很長時間。或者,您可以支付200至300美元的費用來處理簡單的電子書轉換。

If you are comfortable with some html, you might try pasting the ebook contents into Sigil Editor. https://github.com/Sigil-Ebook/Sigil/releases

Tip: It can be easier to make an epub file first and then convert it from epub-to-mobi. (Adobe Indesign can produce an epub file, as can some other programs).

To convert from epub to mobi, you can use Amazon's own Kindle previewer tool https://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html/?docId=1003018611

這取決於您是否希望使用Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing進行發布。 如果您希望它只是作為Kindle格式提供,但不依賴於通過亞馬遜發布,那麽您必須經歷更長一點的過程。

步驟如下:

  • You started a Google Docs document
  • Create a new working folder
  • Download Amazon KindleGen as a zip
  • Unzip the KindleGen in your new folder
  • Export your Google Docs document to an HTML format (so no Word format!)
  • Unzip this HTML document in your new folder too And then the change of coding begins:
  • In the HTML source is a 'style' element: replace all the 'pt' for the 'font-size' with 'em' values.
  • Add in the meta description: so your name will be displayed in the digital info.
  • Do the same if you want your book to have a cover image:
  • Open your cmd on your Windows or Mac
  • Run your Kindlegen with your HTML doc --> for example: C:\kindlegen>kindlegen HTMLDoc.html
  • Now the tool creates a .mobi file in the same folder.

現在,您可以將Kindle連接到筆記本電腦或計算機,導航到您的文檔地圖並將.mobi文件復制到其中。

祝你好運!
