ebook fonts compared to print fonts

Hello, All.
Quick question.

 

The fonts that I used in my print book, will I be able to use the same fonts in the eBook?
I uploaded my file and proofed the results and it looked horrible.
I am assuming that I will have to change on the fonts that will not work on eBook.
Is this correct?

Ebooks don't look at the font unless you specify it, and even then they won't show up unless embedded. I write in Times New Roman, keep the main body text as 12 point when I make the initial conversion to ePub, then I save the manuscript as another copy, reduce it to 11 point, finish my paperback formatting, export to PDF, and upload.

The reader gets to choose the fonts from a small selection of what's available on their Kindle, iPad or other e-reader.

 

Just use a standard font like TNR or Arial.
