This template features 11 image-only pages for your use in creating fixed layout comics and graphic novels in the Kindle format. Demonstrations of several variant ways to embed full pages images are included, as well as methods for inserting more than one image on a page. It is a simplified version of the complete Advanced Template, both of which function as companion files to the full ebook tutorial "How to Make Kindle Comics & Children’s Books."

This Simple Edition template includes examples of three different image embedding methods, plus three layout styles (with multiple instances of each), these being single pages, two-page spreads with an inner margin, and two-page spreads combined into a single landscape image. You are free to use the template as the basis of your own projects. Simply choose the page layout style desired and replace the included images with your own!

Only the source .epub file is now provided, which contains all of the underlying code that you can use to make your own ebook containing any or all of the features listed.

NOTE: This template is available to download FREE with the purchase of How To Make Kindle Comics & Children's Books.

"R. Scot Johns is the world’s most knowledgeable person on the subject of KF8. He understands and communicates much more effectively than Amazon themselves do, and it would be in their interest to buy a copy of his new book for anyone who wants one."
