While interactive elements and graphics can enhance an ebook, the content itself must be compelling. Otherwise, all the other parts are just a glossy finish. Ebook examples that use compelling content will be able to grab the reader’s attention much easier. Turn your content into a narrative that makes it easy to follow. Fill your text with interesting facts that will get the reader to think. The more fascinating the content, the more likely the reader will want to share it with others—and that means even more people will be reading your material.

There are a huge number of factors that go into the cost of a conversion, from the state of the book (digitized? format?) to its complexity (footnotes/endnotes? tables? number of images? relationship of images to text? sidebars?) to any desired enhancements (audio/read-aloud? video? animation? scripting/widgets?) that giving a range of costs would be a bit meaningless.

Ideally, our free ebook templates would magically match your brand colors. But, they probably don't; this is where you get to truly personalize your work. However, because ebooks offer more real estate for color than your logo or website, it's a good idea to consider secondary colors within your brand's color palate. Ebooks are where this color scheme can truly shine.
It supports input file formats that is .DOC or .DOCX of MS Word which can be altered to ePUB extension. Since this program only converts from an MS Word file, it offers restricted features. In order to start the conversion process you need to go to the option that says “Add Word File/Files” and choose the desired MS Word file from your computer and then select the preferred destination/folder where you want to save your eBook. Now initiate the process of conversion of the document and get it in the ePUB extension within minutes.
Let me tell you, although it was an exciting discovery for writers, it was still a straining job to use this machine and it was very time consuming. In today’s world a lot of technology has improved on how the written information can be spread around the world but no much has been done to make the writer’s job easier. The cost is still the same either you spend a lot of time or a lot of money.
Also, all of these programs have idiosyncrasies; most create ePub files that are very difficult to customize, since they treat any style change (italics, font size, indents, etc.) as a unique case, rather than applying a document-wide style. If you use the Styles formatting rules that all of these apps allow — apply a Body style to all body text paragraphs, for example, rather than formatting them as 12pt. Palatino and hitting the tab at the beginning of every paragraph — the results will be better, but inevitably the ePub file produced this way contain WAY too much code, enough to swell the file size. This is a problem when you upload the file to Amazon’s KDP, which will deduct a “transport fee” of $0.15 per megabyte of file size on each download from your royalty. (I’ll be speaking to all of these challenges more in coming months. I’ll also say why it’s probably not worth your time to create files in Apple’s wonderful iBooks Author. iBooks Author is now more of an option than it was when I wrote this originally; still, not for the feint of heart.)

The market for ebooks is huge; people have literally become millionaires by selling books in the Kindle format alone.  It’s a fun way to make money, too – you can decide what you’re going to write about, write it, publish it yourself on the Amazon site (or Barnes & Noble, or any one of a number of other sites) and you can decide for yourself how much you want to charge for the finished product.  Amazon puts a bit of pressure on you to price your books in the $2.99-$9.99 range, but aside from that, you can ask what you want.
