Publishing as entire guide rather than section by section

Why can't I upload my entire guide at once? It seems I have to upload it in sections (with publishing option A.) Isn't ther a way I can upload the whole thing at once (much easier) than piece by piece by piece. Thanks, Laurie

Hi,

One of the benefits of our publishing solution is that you need to enter your content only once. We then create an app and eBook from it, without extra work for you (App and eBook are both optional, as is publishing your content on the website).

Best,
Daniel

Yikes, my apology. I was very confused. I thought the first step was an ebook, then the app. Of course it makes sense to upload section by section for an app. Sorry about that and thanks for clarifying! Laurie

Hi,

That's because apps are much more interactive than books. For that reason, we need to have them split up into separate articles/listings. We may be able to hook you up with somebody who can do this for you for a small fee. Send me a message if you are interested.

Best,
Daniel

HI, Daniel, Thanks for your response but I find this whole process extremely frustrating. My books are on Amazon Kindle and the process was much easier (they were first distributed in print by Simon & Schuster) and I had the rights reverted back to me. Why can't I just submit the guides in word to you? Thanks, Laurie

Hi Laurie,

You will have to upload it it entry by entry (an entry is a listing or an article, see http://www.guidegecko.com/help-publish2#how-to-add-something, step #2). We need to split up the entire text to fit the app (and eBook) format.

Best,
Daniel
