For pandoc to export to epub(2 and 3) all the source text files must be 
assembled onto one single file. But it is simple  a concatenation.
Something like: $ for i in folder/*.md; do cat $i >> book.md; done
If you have footnotes or metadata in each markdown, scripts have to 
reorganize them in new file, but it is also simple.

In pandoc's conversion to epub, you must indicate at what level you want 
the chapters to be generate: heading 1 or 2.
But it is essentially that.

I have assembled a series of simple scripts, triggered by a makefile, to 
perform this (and other) conversion.
Fell welcome to use

hope it helps
