Learn more about eBook publishing:
What is an eBook?
An eBook is a digital version of a printed book. Digital books are designed to be read on a computer or handheld e-reader devices such as the Amazon Kindle or the iPad.
Because eBooks are essentially digital files, publishing your work as an eBook dramatically reduces the cost of distribution and makes it possible for retailers everywhere to carry your book without committing to a physical book stock. This means that eBook publishing has made it possible for authors to get their books on virtual bookshelves at all budget levels.
But eBooks are not just about ease of publishing. Digital books are also the inevitable future of book publishing as a whole. Since 2012, eBook sales have surpassed sales for hardcover books. As people continue to adopt handheld devices such as the iPad, iPhone and Android tablets, the world continues to shift towards consumption of all things digital, including books.
How is an eBook sold?
The majority of eBooks are sold through online book retailers. These are online counter parts to the brick-and-mortar bookstore. Massive retailers such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble have a vibrant eBook business, and they even make their own handheld eBook-reading devices (such as the Amazon Kindle and the Barnes & Noble Nook.)
People can also find and purchase eBooks through other retailers of online goods. For instance, Apple sells eBooks using the iTunes iBookstore, and these books can be read on any Apple device such as the iPhone, iPad and even iPod.
How does an eBook get on major e-retailers?
Most major e-retailers welcome any new eBook following a registration, submission and approval process. Because each e-retailer has its own rules and payment models, the eBook publisher must become familiar with the best way to approach and use each e-retailer. Some e-retailers have unique programs that require exclusive rights to the eBook for a period of time, so it is also important to understand how participating in programs from various eBook stores may result in conflict, in order to plan an effective eBook distribution campaign.
Can I do it myself?
Yes. There are free ways to publish and sell your works, as well as start your own marketing campaign. Self-published authors that achieve success usually become experts at using image manipulation software, copy editing using standard spelling and grammar checkers, eBook publishing and format conversion using a sequence of half-a-dozen open-source apps, starting and managing their own social media campaigns on Twitter and Facebook, writing and distributing their own press releases, developing relationships with news outlets, and becoming active participants of their online community. On the other hand however, because of the steep learning curve to eBook success, the overwhelming majority of authors that attempt self-publishing never make it very far.

From manuscript to eBook success, our team follows a tried-and-true approach to bring a eBook to world-wide distribution and promotion.
