I have a book written in LaTeX. I can build an epub output file using pandoc, but I cannot get the epub title page right. The final epub file is missing Title, Author and Date information.
$ pandoc -S -o mybook.epub --epub-cover-image=images/my_cover.png title.txt mybook.tex
I've tried a second book where the source is in markdown (not LaTeX) format. The title page works correctly.
$ pandoc -S -o guide.epub title.txt part1.markdown part2.markdown
Is there a setting I am missing to get the YAML file (the title.txt file) correct when LaTeX is the source to pandoc?
I used LaTeX rather than markdown for the first book so I could use the sffms LaTeX document class.
