I'm not even sure if this is in the right folder...hopefully!
I want to know what format everyone puts their free ebooks on their blog or newsletter or author emails, etc. I plan on listing a couple short stories and am a little torn between having a PDF or an EPUB.

Thanks! This does seem like the obvious solution. :)

Sreedhar Iyer | 11 comments With a distributor like smashwords, the readers will be able to download in format such as mobi, epub or pdf, with an option to read online too.

Hock Tjoa (hockgtjoa) | 5 comments Jenna, if you have published your stories, you can use Michelle's idea of converting them with Calibre.
If you have published with Smashwords, you have Sreedhar's solution.
If you have composed on a Mac, Pages will let you save the file as pdf or epub.
