Download EBooks Resources

Ebook Resources

A one-page PDF that lists all the resources I use when creating ebooks from InDesign. I created it as a download for my frequent webinars and video courses on creating ebooks so folks didn't have to madly scribble all the URLs down while I was teaching.

Designers and Editors:
Collaborating Without Tears

I put this handout together for the attendees of my "Design and Editorial Collaboration: No Tears" session at the 2022 CreativePro Wee conference. If you're an InDesign user who has to import Word files from contributors, or send out proofs for mark-up, you'll find this handout enlightening.

Adobe Design Basics 2022

Are you at the beginning of your learning curve? This excellent 200+ page PDF covers how to get started with Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and XD. I got permission from the author, Thomas Payne, to distribute this PDF, which I stumbled up on while spelunking in the Adobe Education Resources pages on Adobe.com. It is phenomenal. I teach a lot of beginners and will be using this to help them out.
