I developed my business because publishers and authors were getting ripped-off to the tune of three billion dollars per year with book piracy.  My eReader has an excellent Digital Rights Management system.   If publishers use my system, they can prevent eBook piracy.  However, if the book is poorly written, I can’t help them.  If one reads the negative comments on Amazon, one can see that the major disappointment of these readers is that fact that his BookShot title Cross Kill is not a complete story.  In other words, in his eagerness to lead the reader into the next serial, Patterson forgot that when a reader plunks down money (forget the piracy for a moment), he or she wants a complete drama with no “cliff-hangers.”
Conducting an experiment or business survey? This is a great way to develop proprietary knowledge and become a thought leader in your industry. But how will you share your findings with the people who care about it? Create an ebook that describes the experiment, what you intended to find out, what the results of the experiment were, and what these findings mean for your readers and the market at large.
Visually intuitive interfaces are the future of web design. Make no mistakes about that. If you’re seeking to improve the way that you design websites, this little ebook is an ingenious place to start.

This program is licensed as a free tool and is a great and compelling alternative for all the expensive software available out there. It is extremely competitive even to the high-end and pricey eBook creator tools online. However, Scribus is a program that is not easy to comprehend at one go hence, you need to understand it first and get used to it which takes some time.
A traditional eBook usually looks like a textbook chapter: It’s got an introduction, a list of sections, and a lot of text that follows a linear progression of concepts designed to be read in order. There’s usually some kind of summary conclusion at the end. This structure has worked with print for years. But it’s not a structure that translates well to the web.

And now you are confused over which eBook Creation Software to use. Google is kind enough to put across fifty or so software tools for you to choose from. But that doesn’t lessen the trouble of finding out which one is better. You can’t keep trying each and every eBook creation software. So, we have tried to ease your burden by listing a few simple and efficient eBook creation software which will make it easier for you to select the right platform.

Think of Ceros as a blank canvas. The only limit to what you can create in our Studio is your imagination. So take what you’ve learned about storytelling and forget what you’ve learned about print. Think about how you can tell stories using images, videos, audio, and animations. You’ll likely follow a similar structure to that of a traditional eBook, but the content within each section should feel a lot different.
This file type stands for "Electronic Publication," and is the more flexible ebook formats. By that, I mean EPUB ebooks can "reflow" their text to adapt to various mobile devices and tablets, allowing the ebook's text to move on and off different pages based on the size of the device on which a user is reading the ebook. They're particularly helpful for viewing on smaller screens, such as smartphones as well as the Nook from Barnes and Noble.
If you’re publishing an e-book, it’s obvious you’re a skilled writer, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other skilled writers out there. If you have a great online resource that you want to share with your followers, include an external hyperlink in your e-book. (Let that source know, too, and hopefully they’ll promo your content to their followers.)
I submit that unless and until publishers learn to create stories that can be total experiences for the reader, and still come in at less than 150 pages, they will not win at the BookShot game.  Also, unless and until publishers learn that good DRM helps the publisher and the author make money, then we will eventually not have to worry about the sales of these books being poor because readers will be getting them for free.
Whoops, MIT, I see you got the entire thing backwards, as usual.  Instead of rushing around trying to please everybody, why not do what CEO Jonny Kaldor talked about at the 2015 London Book Fair?   Our publishers drive their content through our ePub3 Creator Studio and eReader, cross-channels, to all mobile devices at one time.  Silly Mr. Pontin.  The answer was again in front of your nose, but you got it reversed.  Instead of creating all those versions of your publication for the different devices, all you needed to do was create one version that could adapt easily to all those devices.  That’s what we did!
Unless a customer or prospect is reading a book on an eReader, they’re unlikely to read pages and pages of text online. Luckily, an interactive eBook can convey a rich, valuable story without needing 5000 words of copy. Using videos, images, GIFs, animations, and layers of information, you can fully convey your story without relying on tons of copy to deliver the narrative.

Create an electronic storybook. To create your story: * Write some text.* Illustrate by drawing on the screen, taking a photograph of something you see, or drawing on paper and then photographing the paper, or attaching photos from your album.* Sounds can be recorded for telling your story or as sound effects.* Layout the elements of your story (text boxes, images, and sound clips) freely by dragging them or pinching to resize.* Add, reorder, or delete pages from your book.

If you’re an Apple user, you have the benefit of keeping all your creative projects in one place and don’t need to maintain separate accounts on different sites around the web. iBooks lets you use your AppleID and password to access the application for free. Even though it’s a standard application released with Apple products, we found this eBook publisher’s templates to be better looking and of a higher quality than those in other programs we tested. iBooks Author has many of the same features as other e-publishing software, including translation and branding tools, and you can use MOBI, PDF and HTML files in the application. One of the only problems we had with software during testing was that it had a slow loading rate – you have to wait around a bit while the app processes your input. Besides that, iBooks Author has all the support and tools you need get started with web and eBook publishing on your Mac device.
