EMRE Publishing, LLC wants to stay ahead of its competition. This is why Jim Musgrave wanted to stay with an open source product. It’s much faster and easier to have a talented developer create an “add on” for the client than it is to lock-in the reader with proprietary code that will deprecate the user experience and cost the customer more. We are the only multimedia app publisher who allows the publisher/author to collect 100% of the cost of his/her titles once they purchase one of our publishing plans. For example, if the author wants to upgrade a present title using the studio then he/she can buy the Advanced ePub3 Production Plan for very little money.
First of all, none of the files created by these apps will display quite the way that you expect them to in various ereaders, especially if you’ve got an ebook that’s got any complicated formatting such as drop-caps, tables, inset images, fancy typography, etc. The apps will try to reproduce on the screen what you were trying to create for the printed page, but often the style rules that the apps try to create make an incredible mess in one or more ereader. Everything may display as plain text on a Nook, while small images may fill the page on an old Kindle, while no images display at all on the Kindle app on your computer.
It’s worth noting how the software you choose stores your work. Does it save it to its server via the cloud, or do you download the software onto your computer? To use cloud software, you need a solid internet connection, so it is a good option if you plan to write at home or a cafe. On the other hand, if you write during your commute on the train, it may be better to find a program you can download. There are pros and cons to both, so consider your situation before making a decision.

Modern Day Miracle Workers- That’s what happens when you combine the brilliance and the fanatical support that Kotobee offers. I came across this website in late 2015 with an idea for a new way of creating children’s books. I knew what I wanted the book to look like, but I had no idea how to create the programming for it. I had a major issue with Apple iBooks and Kotobee figured it out and we had the book to market in February 2016. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough and they have a customer for life in me. I just hope more people work with them so they stay in business for as long as I am alive!

2.  The value of delivery to the end consumer:  a reader of digital content.  The reader gets to experience exactly what the author/publisher intends to deliver.  Not only that but the eBook can be in conventional (ePub2 format, .mobi Kindle format, or .pdf Adobe Reader format) as well as the cutting-edge ePub3 format.  And, if they wish, they can push a button to order the print-on-demand version of the book and have it shipped to them. There are no “middlemen” taking a slice out of that business experience, as in a gatekeeper’s fee or as in confusing extra logins and deliveries to different devices.  The communication is between the publisher and the reader–scratch off those sneaky middlemen!

My passion is storytelling, that almost-lost art of making sense with style, conviction and ease, no matter if that tale is a book of fiction or non-fiction, a training manual requiring precision and branding, or a monthly newsletter to members or prospects that means engagement or leads. I help authors of all kinds refine their stories so they can reach their full potential, free of errors and omissions, yet full of the writer’s own style and voice. I help design environments in books and other publications that attract attention to that message in a sleek and modern style, without clutter and never detracting from the integrity of the narrative. My experience in book publishing allows me to guide authors through the self-publishing maze, including Createspace, Lightning Souce/IngramSpark, Lulu and Blurb for print books; Kindle, iBooks, Kobo, Nook, Google for eBooks; and intermediaries such as Smashwords, BookBaby and Draft2Digital. My clients also benefit from my knowledge of and feel for the general-interest, health, and business audiences, gained through three decades of work as a writer, editor, and designer interacting daily with readers of all types and callings. My editing/design services include: * Concept or developmental editing * Copy/line editing * Final proofreading * Book and periodical cover and interior layout and formatting * eBook conversion and submission * Publishing and distribution consultation Let me help you take your work, your creativity, your message to the next level – the eye level on the Top Shelf.
Ebooks have some system of chapters and supporting images. Similar to a blog post, they also do well when further segmenting their text with subheaders that break down the discussion into specific sections. If you're writing about professional sports, for example, and one of your chapters is about Major League Baseball (MLB) in the U.S., you might want to establish subchapters about the various teams belonging to the MLB.
This allows you to insert any URL you want, and Sqribble will automatically pull the content from that page and insert into your book. It strips the html code and only inserts the text from the page. This is a great method because it saves a ton of time, and allows you to use expert content (with credits) so you can target topics and niches you’re not an expert in!
11. A professional ebook design uses standard formatting, not block formatting. This means that there is not extra spacing between paragraphs, and all paragraphs—except for the first paragraph in a chapter and the first paragraph after a scene break—are indented. We recommend a .25 inch indent, rather than the full .5 inch indent that Word gives. You can read more about standard versus block formatting in our blog post here.
The movement against what the Smashwords CEO called “a monopoly preventing free expression” has begun against Amazon.  We believe our product will help publishers and enterprising authors to gain a foothold in this battle to take-back the author/reader relationship.  Our platform is the only mobile platform that permits publishers to run a complete publishing business through their cell phone, iPad and tablet.  No more middlemen to take 30% off the top.  No more piling your books into “all you can devour” buffets like Kindle Unlimited.  Our clients work hard to establish the best relationships they can with their readers and students.  They expect to receive the majority of the profits as well.
A few of the platforms we reviewed mimic social media accounts – almost like LinkedIn accounts for self-publishers. These can be a great resource for finding opportunities to host your work or connect with other authors. We liked services that let you customize your profile and make professional connections so you can publish your work to as many places on the web as possible.
