How to import to BookSmart a story which has been written on Microsoft Word?

Can anyone advise me on how to bring in to my online BookSmart publishing, the story which I have written on Microsoft Word?

This is my first attempt at publishing on line and it has become a significant learning curve for me.

Advice appreciated.

Me Too!  I have over 37 pages in word that I want to bring into Booksmart.  Is it a copy/paste solution?  Please tell us more!

Thank you

If you're starting a brand new Pocket or Trade book you can find instructions on formating your Word document for our importer in this FAQ. Then select "Word Import" from the new book setup.

If you have an existing project or your book size is not one of the listed above, you'll need to copy and paste from Word into your book project.  As always, if you're copying and pasting from a Word file, a website, or somewhere else, it's best to right-click and select "Paste as plain text", then use BookSmart's text features to format your text.

I have an entire manuscript in Word and would like to import it, format it, add photos and publish it. Since apparently a Word document can only be downloaded into Booksmart

I see that this post is old, but I had this question all day, and just now figured it out, at least for the issue i had. SO just sharing in case anyone is still wondering!

Basically, when you have the book open that you are working on, and you want to bring in text, make sure that it is set up with the correct margins, in rtf format, then in booksmart, click on a blank page, (the big thing here is to make sure you have selected it to have a text layout. It won't paste otherwise), THEN you can past.

The easiest way is when you are first setting up a new book project, it gives you the option, once you've chosen a word doc book, to import. But if you need to make changes or bring in all new text while you're editing, the first way I explained works! Hope this helps someone else!
