Oddly enough we recently had a thread about ePub and generally found
it quite difficult so you might be able to help other people straight

I saw that thread...long and intimidating! lol.
Personally, I keep it very simple: I copy the document (cut & paste or
type) into LO Writer. I only use the following paragraph styles
'Default' or 'Text Body' and Heading 1, 2, 3 for chapter headings.
Occasionally, I'll use a quotation style as required. All edits are done
in a fixed-width font for readability and editing (I prefer Courier Prime).
Footnotes are always end of chapter if I use sections and a master
document, or end of document (which is easier to manage, IMO, since I
don't have to mess with a master document. Some long and complex books
with lots of footnotes get the master document treatment, with each
chapter having its own section.
When finished with the input and review, I change Default Paragraph,
Text Body, and Heading fonts to 'Times New Roman'. I don't use the
writer to epub plugin...since I've had bad luck with it. Instead, I use
Calibre to convert from .odt to .epub. The good thing about Calibre, is
I can keep the .odt file IN the calibre library for edits later on (if I
find an error, etc), and just convert it to epub again as required.
