the exciting new world of ebooks
There has been a phenomenal increase in sales of dedicated eBook readers, a surge in which Amazon's Kindle, Apple's iPad and Barnes & Noble's NOOK devices have figured prominently. With eBooks now appealing to all age groups, there has never been a better time to publish your own eBook - whether on its own or in addition to a paperback version of your book. Please note, that the charge for authors who only wish to take up our eBook publishing service is £90.00. The reason for the £60.00 price when both options are taken (instead of £90.00) is that a lot of the work involved in bringing out a paperback can be easily transferred to the eBook so, with both options purchased by an author, we have less work to do when publishing the eBook.
With our eBook services we will format your text so that it can be read and displayed correctly on the major eBook reading devices. As part of our operations, we produce file types (EPUB and MOBI) to suit the various devices. It's worth noting that colour 'comes free' with eBooks. With printed books, colour printing is exorbitantly expensive, with eBooks there is no extra cost at all in displaying colour photographs, illustrations and drawings.
A paperback cover consists of a front cover, spine and back cover. An eBook, by contrast, uses what is called a marketing image as you can see in the example above for one of our authors. It's absolutely essential that you have a powerful marketing image as this is one of the first things which a potential customer will see when browsing through books online.
As part our our service we will set you up with a storefront to showcase your eBook. This not only allows customers to easily order from your storefront but also provides a range of different screens showing royalties, order information and other helful details. Notice that you don't have to select paperback publishing in order to have an eBook published. The author shown above chose to publish an eBook only using our services.
