Sell digital editions of your book for Kindle, Nook, iBooks, and other eBook readers. Your book can be read on many devices, such as eReaders, tablets, smartphones, and computers, just to name a few. eBooks are inexpensive to produce (there are no printing costs, even for color!) and convenient for readers to purchase and download. You can even make your eBook available to libraries for lending.
There are two eBook formats: ePub and Kindle. The Kindle format is just for the Kindle, and the ePub format is for all other eReaders. When your ePub and Kindle editions are ready, you’ll be able to sell them online through booksellers such as Amazon (Kindle), Barnes & Noble (Nook), iTunes (iBooks), and Chapters-Indigo (Kobo). You’ll register with eBook vendors, enter into a contract with them, and upload the appropriate edition of your eBook. Your readers will be able to find your book online, purchase it, and download the appropriate edition for their eReader.
Did you know that you don’t actually need a dedicated eReader to read eBooks? You can read eBooks on whatever electronic device you have. For example, if you have a computer, tablet or smartphone, you can download a free eReader or app to read Kindle or ePub eBooks. So anyone with a computer, tablet, or smartphone can read eBooks too.
After your print book goes to press, I’ll be happy to convert it to ePub and Kindle editions for you. I’ll provide you with a firm quote when the time comes. I only do eBook conversions for books that I’ve designed and typeset in InDesign.
