Can we make our e-book with InDesign?

Ok, I decided to make a screencast video to show what I did with InDesign and how I think it will work with our project.  Unfortunately, Jing's free screencasts are in the swf format and I couldn't post it to the blog or know how to convert it.  So, to see the video, follow this link.  It is kind of big, but everything I did was in the middle of the screen.

I then used calibre to convert the ePub format into mobi and I think the results looked pretty good

Here are some pictures of what these books looked like on the kindle:

And the one I made with our googledoc and a random picture


  1. Sweet! Good work Sam! You did a lot of research for this!

  2. Wow! I'm so impressed! I'm sure this will be very helpful. You brought up and then resolved key questions, which was really settling for me. Thanks for your work!!
